Scholastic Achievement of Former L.B.C.C. [Long Beach Community College] Students Entering the University of California During the Academic Year 1972-73.
Becker, George L.
This report examines the scholastic achievement of 132 students who transferred from Long Beach City College (LBCC) to the University of California (UC) for the 1972-73 school year. Findings show that LBCC transfers to all branches of the university compare favorably with all community college transfers at UC. Statistics also reveal steady improvement in scholastic achievement by LBCC transfers over the past several years with regard to: GPA earned at LBCC prior to enrollment at UC (3.17 vs. 2.85), GPA earned at the university (2.93 vs. 2.46), and an increased percentage of students achieving a "B" average or above (44 percent vs. 26 percent). Generally, statistics related to scholastic performance of LBCC transfers generate a story of successful achievement. Students who initially qualify for UC on graduation from high school but defer enrollment and attend LBCC first are receiving good preparation for university work. Tables and graphs representing the statistical findings are included in the report. (AH)
