Extensive statistical data summarizes the characteristics and academic progress of transfer students from the Florida community colleges to the state university system in 1974, 1975 and 1976. Summary data are presented by sex, race, age, and university; date of entry, credits earned prior to entry; college of origin, and grade point average (GPA). Also included are cumulative GPAs for transfer students by credit hours transferred and community college origin, and data on majors according to university attended and year of transfer. Highlights of the study include a continual increase of transfers over the three year period, with the number of female, black, and Hispanic transfers increasing. Most students transfer to the university nearest their home after completing 90 quarter (60 semester) hours. The majority earn a GPA of 2.00 or better, and finish upper division study or otherwise withdraw in two years. Data tables present trends in comparative and summary form. (RT)
