Academic Progress at the City University of New York: September 1970 to June 1975.
Kaufman, Barry; Loveland, Susan A.
The academic progress (i.e., retention, graduation, and credit accumulation) of students who entered the City University of New York as first-time freshmen in the fall semesters 1970-74 is reviewed in order to update previously reported information. Data are given by college level and for the individual colleges of the univeristy, by high school average categories, by sex, by characteristics of students' area of residence, and by high school type. Three measures of academic progress are used: enrollment in a given semester or cumulative graduation by the end of the semester; accumulation of a specified number of credits by the end of a given semester or cumulative graduation by the end of that semester; and cumulative graduation by the end of the given semester. The findings are generally consistent with those previously published, although the data on credit accumulation may still contain serious shortcomings. Comparative statistics show that CUNY graduation rates for 1970 and 1971 entrant were lower than the national average, but after five years the CUNY senior college graduation rates were similar to the four-year rates for the national sample of public institutions.
