A Step Ahead.
Nicholson, Darrell H.
This study on articulation and requirements for transfer into 4-year institutions serves junior college students, faculty, and staff as a counseling aid and reference text. Questionnaire responses from a random sample of 200 colleges and universities accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools show that: (1) for transferring D credits when the applicant has an overall C average and the AA degree, 48 percent of the respondents would take the D grades (50 percent qualified acceptance) and 52 percent would not; (2) on repeat hours, 42 percent reported they did not count hours attempted every time a course was repeated, while 58 percent did so; (3) concerning requirements for continued enrollment at the institution, 30 percent required a C average and 64 percent granted good academic standing with less than a C average up to graduation (graduation requiring an overall C average); (4) for a student without the AA degree, or at least a C average on all work attempted, even if the student showed some potential for completion at the institution, 40 percent felt they would not grant him conditional admission, while 60 percent said they would grant some form of conditional admission; (5) respondents have varying numbers of on-campus and off-campus living spaces available for transfers into their junior class in the fall (five schools did not respond to this item).
