An Analysis of Student Transfers from Pennsylvania Community Colleges.
This document analyzes data on student transfers from Pennsylvania community colleges. The major sources of data are community college follow-up reports on graduates (3,132 transfers reported); the statistical reports of enrollments by receiving institutions (4,001 transfers reported); and the results of a Pennsylvania Association of Counselors for Transfer (PACT) follow-up survey of community college graduate transfers. The PACT survey analyzes data received from the 1,184 respondents by age, program, and receiving institution. Seven hundred forty were under 23; 271 were between the ages of 23 and 30; and 113 were over 30. The program areas most frequently chosen were education (282), business and management (259), and social services (154). Data from the PACT survey also reveals that 346, or 29 percent of the respondents, had some difficulty in the transfer process. In addition, the 369 transfers to Penn State Capitol Campus in 1974 are analyzed to determine how many students have a lapse of time between community college graduation and enrollment at a four-year institution. Data are organized into tabular form throughout, and 12 comprehensive charts are appended. (NHM)
