Transfer Students at Florida A and M University.
Abraham, A. A.
According to Florida's Articulation Agreement, students receiving the associates degree from public junior colleges may be admitted automatically to the state universities. A followup study of transferees who entered Florida A & M University in September 1973 found that there were more female than male transferees. There was no evidence of the usual transfer shock on their record, but Florida A & M University received far fewer than its share of all transfer students when based on the total enrollment for the state university system. Few blacks are in and graduating from the junior colleges in Florida. Therefore, until current standards of admission and achievement are changed, blacks should recognize that career education for them requires the same kind of long-range preparation. More specifically and probably for the first time they will have to be served by much more relevant and broader guidance systems of (1) early identification, (2) mastering developmental tasks, (3) motivation, (4) information, and (5) financial aid.
