Five Year Follow-up Study for 1975 and a Review of Follow-up Studies from 1966-1975, Jefferson Davis Campus, Mississippi Gulf Coast Junior College, Department of Business and Office Administration.
Mississippi Gulf Coast Junior Coll., Perkinston.
Since 1966 the Department of Business and Office Administration at the Jefferson Davis (JD) Campus of the Mississippi Gulf Coast Junior College has conducted follow-up studies of all students who were enrolled in any of its courses. Between 1966 and 1970, studies of each student group were conducted at one- and two-year intervals; since 197l, however, five-year retrospective studies have been conducted. This report presents the findings of the 1975 survey and presents highlights of the previous surveys. In 1975, 37 of the 138 surveys mailed were completed and returned. Of these, 38% were graduates of JD. The majority of the non-graduates had attended JD only two semesters. After leaving JD, 59% had attended a senior institution and indicated that their grades at JD were lower than or equal to grades received at the senior institution. An additional 8% had attended another two-year college. All respondents who had entered the world of work immediately after leaving JD indicated satisfaction with their preparation. (DC)
