Gold, Ben K.
The performance of Los Angeles City College (L.A.C.C.) students who transfered to the University of California during the 1972-1973 academic year was studied and compared with past performance data. The study data were obtained from a report of the performance of new L.A.C.C. transfer students by the University of California and previous L.A.C.C. research studies. The findings of the study are presented in tables and figures. These findings show that: (1) 182 students (11 percent more than the previous year) transferred to the University of California from L.A.C.C.; (2) average GPA of the students at the University was over one-tenth of a grade point below that of the previous year transfers, but was higher than any other group prior to 1969; (3) 87 percent of the transfers attended UCLA, while the remainder attended six other branches of the university; (4) 53 percent of the transfers were male; (5) of those attending UCLA, 80 percent chose a major in the College of Letters and Science, 15 percent chose fine arts, and 5 percent chose engineering; those in fine arts earned the highest GPA; (6) 57 percent of the grades earned at UCLA were A's and B's, with only 8 percent being D's and F's; the highest grades earned were in foreign language and fine arts, whereas the lowest were in economics and physical sciences; and (7) the largest enrollments were in history, art, English, and psychology.
