Fall 1974 Entering Students in Their Fourth Semester, Fall 1974 Through Spring 1976: First Report. Student Flow Project, Report No. 6.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Community Coll. System.
As part of a longitudinal study of student progress through the Hawaii community colleges, fall 1974 entering students were studied for three semesters ending in fall 1975. Continuation rates were higher for new students than for transfer students, males than for females, vocational education majors than for liberal arts or other majors, and technical and business education majors than for other vocational groupings among new students. Full-time students constituted a larger proportion for new than for transfer students, males than for females, vocational education majors than for liberal arts or other majors, and technology majors than for other vocational groupings of new students. Withdrawal rates were about equal for new and transfer students, but higher for males, and higher for liberal arts majors than for vocational education majors. Change of major rates were higher for new students, for females, and for vocational education majors, especially business education majors. Graduation rates were higher for transfer students, females, and vocation education majors; of course, however, high graduation rates are expected at the end of the fourth semester. Detailed tables of data, including data for each of the seven community colleges, are appended. (Author/NHM)
