A Statewide Follow-Up Study of Fall 1973 Transfer Students from Illinois Public Community Colleges: Phase II Progress Report. Research Report No. 12.
Illinois Community Coll. Board, Springfield.
This document reports a follow-up study of 10,504 students who transferred in fall 1973 from Illinois community colleges to Illinois senior institutions, in order to identify patterns of mobility by both sending community colleges and receiving senior institutions, and to study the pre- and post-transfer characteristics and achievement of these students. Data are compared to the findings of a similar study of the transfer population of fall 1967. The performance of the transfer students was measured by three criteria: persistence of the students at the senior college, academic status, and gradepoint average (GPA). The study shows that the large majority of transfers continued to pursue the baccalaureate degree, and 78% of those whose academic status was known were in clear or good standing. At the end of the spring 1974 term, the mean GPA of transfer students was 2.65, only .15 lower than the mean pre-transfer GPA. (NHM)
