This report provides information on the academic progress of the 26,742 students who transferred from a Florida community college and were enrolled in one of the universities of the Florida State University System during fall 1973. It follows a similar study of community college transfers in fall 1971. Data presented are pertinent to three general areas: (1) transfer student characteristics (sex, race, age, year of university entrance, number of quarter hours transferred, present class status, county of residence, community college attended, and university attended); (2) academic performance of community college transfer students (university grade point averages, comparisons of grade point averages attained in universities by students transferring prior to or after earning 90 quarter hours or more in the community college, and grade point averages of transfer students by major and university); (3) relationship between Florida Twelfth Grade Test scores and university grade point averages of transfer students. Appended is a brief report on the academic success of students of community college origin in post-baccalaureate studies. (DC)
