Male GPA's (grade point averages) at the university were higher than female for the "eligibles" while female GPA's were higher than male for the "ineligibles" and for the combined total. Overall, grade point averages for the transfers declined by .39 in their first year at university, compared to .37 for transfers from other state community colleges. Grades earned were 52% A's and B's and 14% D's and F's. Largest enrollments by the transfers were in sociology, psychology, and history; 83% chose majors within the College of Letters and Science. During the academic year 1975-76, 713 former L.A.C.C. students entered California State University at Los Angeles, of which 597 (84%) completed some work. First quarter GPA's of the transfers fell .06 grade points below their junior college average of 2.57. B averages or better were earned by 36% of the transfers while 20% fell below a C average; 52% of grades earned were A's or B's and 13% were D's and F's.
