Where Do All the Students Go?
A 14% random sample of the 14,725 students enrolled for credit classes at the Center and South Campuses of Macomb County Community College (MCCC) in the Spring of 1971 completed a followup questionnaire in Fall of 1974. The usable response rate was 53%. Students' backgrounds at time of enrollment are given in terms of age, marital status, residency, and program enrollment. MCCC's impact on the students is discussed with respect to percentages receiving degrees and continuing their education. Nearly half of the students were eigher presently enrolled in higher education or had graduated from a four-year institution. Transfer students success at other two- and four-year schools show MCCC students to be well prepared; grade-point averages reveal remarkable consistency between performance at Macomb and the four-year transfer institutions. On the other side, 22% of working students felt there was no relationship between course work and present occupation. Recommendations drawn from the study call for improved job placement services, as well as the need for further studies of this type. A copy of the questionnaire is included along with tables representing student responses. (AH)
