An Analysis of Pennsylvania Community College Student Transfers.
This is the third study conducted to analyze the transfer pattern of community college students in Pennsylvania. Information sources were student followup data from the community colleges and enrollment data of all higher education institutions. The followup data showed that the trend from 1970 through 1973 had been a rather consistent distribution of transfers among the various segments. In 1973, the percentages of transfers to the segments were: out-of-state, 12; state-owned, 25; state related, 37; state-aided, 6; private, 20. The most significant change was a doubling of the number of students transferring to the state-aided segment over the 4-year span. Of the 3,112 students transferring to state-owned or state-related schools, 1,242 transferred to state-owned institutions, and 1,870 transferred to state-related universities. State-related universities not only absorbed the largest number of community college transfers but also accepted a larger percentage as juniors. The study data are provided in 43 tables. (DB)
