The Academic Success of Transfer Students in the College of Agriculture at Texas A & M University.
Autry, Joseph W.; Webb, Earl S.
The study identifies and translates data relative to transfer students in the College of Agriculture at Texas A & M University that can serve for more effective counseling. The results of the study are summarized in 24 statements. Among conclusions based on data obtained from university records and from some of the transferring institutions and analyzed statistically are these: (1) students of lower academic ability tend to enroll in junior colleges and then transfer; (2) transferring institutions give adequate preparation; and (3) transfer students from small high schools perform better. Implications drawn from the study include three for counselors, who can recommend with confidence that students from small schools attend a junior or other senior college before transferring to the College of Agriculture; that they may transfer to any major curricular area; and that they should earn the maximum amount of transferable credit before moving.
