Follow-up of Potential Students Who Did Not Complete Registration at Cerritos College, Fall 1972 [and] Follow-up Survey of "No-Shows"; Cerritos College, Fall 1972.
Schaumburg, Gary F.
The purpose of the present study was to gain some insight as to why students initiate but do not complete registration at Cerritos College. A sample of 1,275 were identified as not having completed the registration process preceding the Fall semester, 1972. A postage-paid postcard questionnaire was sent to each of these students; 28% were completed and returned. The results suggest that: (1) apparently the major reason why some potential students do not complete registration is that they are unable to take the course they desire at a time that fits their schedule; (2) about 24% of those who did return the questionnaire attended another two-year college or four-year school the same semester; (3) of the "other" reasons for not completing registration, the four most frequently cited were: (a) "Personal, health, or family problems"; (b) "In military service"; (c) "Moved or out of state"; and (d) "Money problems." In addition, 40% stated they were considering enrolling in the Spring, and 49% said they were not. (Author)
