Spring 1976 Non-Continuing Students Registered at Other Community Colleges; Fall 1975 Entering Students. Student Flow Project, Report No. 20.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Community Coll. System.
As part of a continuing study of student flow in Hawaii community colleges, characteristics of fall 1975 entering students who did not continue at the same community college in spring 1976 but who registered at another public community college were examined. Characteristics studied were sex, entry status, full/part-time status, program, grade point average, credit completion ratio, and cumulative credits earned. Of 2,499 non-continuing students in spring 1976, 140 (6%) registered at another community college. Of these 140, 56% were males, 71% were new students, 56% were full-time students, 59% were liberal arts majors, 37% had grade point averages below 2.0, 40% had credit-completion ratios below .50, and 74% were students with less than l2 cumulative credits. Only 46% retained the same major field of study. Significant differences were found between the total population of non-continuing students and those who registered at another college on five of the seven characteristics studied: full/part-time status, program, grade point average, credit-completion ratio, and cumulative credits. Findings are presented for each campus and tabulated data are appended. (JDS)
