BC [Bakersfield College] Students Who Transfer: A Profile of Progress.
Scott, David C.
This study deals with Bakersfield College students who transfer to institutions that grant the baccalaureate degree. Three parts of the study answer the following questions: How many transferred and where did they go? What courses did they take? What kind of grades did they earn? Part 1 of the report, Numbers of Bakersfield College Students to Transfer to 4-Year Colleges, contains 15 tables giving the numbers of students from Bakersfield College to transfer to each state college and university, the total numbers attending these colleges, and the totals as a percentage of the overall Bakersfield College enrollment. In Part 2, Major Areas of Study of Bakersfield College Transfers, 12 tables provide data that concern the major fields of study of all former Bakersfield College students who attended four-year colleges in California in the 1973-74 academic year. Part 3, Academic Achievement of Bakersfield College Transfers at State Colleges and Universities and the University of California, presents data dealing with academic performance of Bakersfield College students transferring to the 27 public four-year colleges in California. Section A gives an introduction, 22 tables, and a summary for grades earned at the state colleges and universities, and Section B (3 tables) provides the same information for the University of California. Part 4 of the report, Conclusions, contains two sections: A. Recommendations for Further Research and B. Interpretations. (DB)
