In 1976-77, Los Angeles City College (LACC) received the annual reports from 14 of the 19 campuses of the California State University and College System on the performance of LACC transfers. A synthesis of these reports produced the following highlights: (1) 856 transfers were reported; (2) the Los Angeles (65%), Northridge (17%), Long Beach (7%), and Dominguez Hills (5%) campuses accounted for 94% of the reported transfers; (3) total transfers dropped from 1,119 in 1972-73, a drop of nearly 5%; (4) grade point average (GPA) at the state institutions for transfers averaged 2.55, compared with an LACC average of 2.64; (5) females achieved a GPA of 2.63 compared to 2.48 for males; and (6) comparisons of GPA by majors at Los Angeles, Long Beach, and Northridge campuses showed that students in Letters and Science had more difficulty in 1976 than in 1972, while students in Business had less.
