Proportion of Hofstra Freshmen in Graduating Classes. Report No. 97.
McDermott, Marie
The purpose of this study is to determine what percentage of a graduating class entered Hofstra as freshmen. Five graduating classes were selected for this investigation (1970, 1969, 1968, 1967, 1966) in the hope of revealing year-to-year changes in the precentages and for verification of results. Although the scope of this study is limited, it has provided important and consistent information. Approximately 50% of all Hofstra graduates were also Hofstra freshmen. In addition, about 22% of the Hofstra freshmen-graduates took more than 4 years to graduate. The greatest single proportion (about 45%) of the graduating transfers entered Hofstra 2 years before graduation, with most of them having between 61 and 80 credits. The smallest number of transfers entered Hofstra either 5 years or 1 year before graduation. (HS)
