A Statewide Follow-up Study of Fall 1973 Transfer Students from Illinois Public Community Colleges (Phase III Progress Report). Volume II, Number 11.
Illinois Community Coll. Board, Springfield.
A follow-up study of 10,145 students who transferred from all Illinois public community colleges during the fall of 1973 was conducted to determine the extent of the progress made by such students in senior institutions, the magnitude of community college transfers to Illinois public senior institutions, and the mobility patterns of community college transfers. Results of the study indicated: (1) 86.4% of the transfers attended public universities; (2) students tended to transfer to nearby state universities; (3) 40.7% had completed an Associate degree while 59.3% transferred prior to Associate degree completion; (4) average American College Test score of transfers was 20.0 and their average grade point average was 2.8; (5) at the end of the spring 1974 term, 88% were still enrolled at senior institutions, with 1.2% having completed a baccalaureate one year after transfer; (6) two years after transfer, 22.2% had graduated, 55.3% were enrolled in good standing, 4.6% were on academic probation, 2.1% were dismissed, and 15.8% had withdrawn; and (7) transfer students' grade point average declined to 2.64 at the end of the first year after transfer but increased to 2.8 at the end of the second year. Fourteen tables of study data are included, and the survey instruments employed in the study are appended. (JDS)
