Trends in L. A. C. C. Graduates, 1962-1975.
Gold, Ben K.
Trends in graduate characteristics at Los Angeles Community College (LACC) are analyzed for the period from 1962-1975 and are compared to data from other California community colleges. Numbers of graduates are tallied according to sex, day or evening status, January or June completion, and major. The total number of associate degrees (AA) awarded rose steadily through the first decade of the period, but has declined in the last three years. Likewise, the percent of the total college enrollment receiving the associate degree rose from 5.2 percent in 1962 to a high of 9.4 percent in 1972, but dipped to 6.8 percent in 1975. The number of women receiving degrees overtook the number of men graduates in 1972, and has increased since that time. The percent of June degree recipients has hovered around the 60 percent mark throughout the period. The percent of evening student graduates rose to a high of 32.7 percent in 1974, but dropped markedly in 1975. About 40 percent of the 1975 graduates completed a two-year occupational major, a figure slightly below the 1974 percentage. In comparison with other California community colleges in 1974, LACC ranked fourth (of 96) in number of AA degrees awarded, and twenty-ninth in ratio of number of degrees to enrollment. (NHM)
