Occupations Available to the Community College Trained: A Reverse Transfer Manual for Counselors and Academic Advisers.
Westbrook, Franklin D.
Kuznik (1972) completed a study of community college populations and found that there is a rapidly growing number of students enrolled who were formerly enrolled in 4-year colleges and universities (reverse transfers). Impressively large percentages of the reverse transfers (38% males and 40% females) were continuing with their vocational plans, but even larger percentages of them either planned to enter a new field or did not have definite vocational plans (45% males and 44.5% females). Above 30% of the males and above 25% of the females complained of getting no assistance in making their transfers, and very similar percentages of the two groups of reverse transfers were either negative or bitter about their experiences at the 4-year institutions. A survey was made of the 16 Maryland public community college academic and vocational programs and a manual was written to assist counselors and academic advisers with their efforts to help students exiting Maryland 4-year colleges and universities find appropriate academic placement in Maryland public community colleges. Holland vocational codes were used to show similarities between occupations available to those trained at community colleges and occupations that are normally acquired by graduates from 4-year institutions.
