Academic Performance of L.A.C.C. Transfers to UCLA Through the Special Services Program, 1971-72.
Gold, Ben K.
This study assesses the first year performance of 69 Los Angeles City College (LACC, California) transfer students at UCLA who participated in a federally-funded special services program. The program was designed to assist students, selected on the basis of need and academic potential, who were otherwise ineligible to transfer. Some conclusions derived from analysis and comparisons of academic performance were: (1) relative to their performance at LACC, the 1971-72 special services transfers performed well at UCLA--their grade point differential was less than that of all LACC transfers; (2) first year performance was considerably lower for special services transfers than for all LACC transfers; (3) LACC grade point average is clearly related to UCLA grade point average; and (4) the transfers generally performed well in fine arts courses at UCLA, doing better in courses requiring verbal rather than quantitative skills.
