Community College Graduates Continue to Do Well.
Losak, John; Corson, Hal
A follow-up study of a 10% (n=461) random sample of all persons who graduated from Miami-Dade Community College between July 1970 and June 1971 inclusive (n=4,620) was conducted in early 1976 in order to determine how many of the graduates entered the Florida State University System (SUS) and, of those who entered, how many graduated. Follow-up data on the study subjects were obtained from each of the nine SUS registrars. The data revealed: (1) a total of 298 students (171 men and 127 women) entered the SUS; (2) 205 students had graduated from the SUS while 32 were still enrolled; (3) 7 students had received advanced degrees; (4) 70 students were placed on academic probation at some time during their SUS experience; (5) 67 students transferred one or more times within the SUS; and (6) in summary, of the total sample, 66% entered the SUS while 45% earned a bachelor's degree. It should be noted that former Miami-Dade students who enrolled in private institutions within Florida or public and private institutions outside of Florida were not included in this follow-up. Flow charts illustrating student progress by institution and type of Associate Degree are appended. (JDS)
