Ten of the twelve research studies conducted at South Oklahoma City Junior College (SOCJC) during fiscal year 1977 focused on some aspect of the student population. The first study in this compilation compared enrollments between fall 1975 and 1976 in terms of student age, day and night courses, type of instruction, and degree program. The second study considered SOCJC's rate of retention and contrasted it with national trends. The third study indicated that junior college students' self-concept was lower than that of university students. The fourth study examined American College Testing Program scores of students entering SOCJC in fall 1976 in terms of college choice factors and educational aspiration and background. The fifth study, a graduate follow-up, focused on student satisfaction with the college experience. The sixth study concentrated on the grade point average of students who transferred from SOCJC to four-year institutions. The seventh study was a follow-up of students enrolled in immediate job entry programs in fall 1975 who did not re-enroll in fall 1976. The eighth study compared student characteristics from fall 1976 and spring 1977, while the ninth compared the percent of graduates at SOCJC with percentages from two other area junior colleges. The final study focused on students who signed up for classes but never paid their fees. (AYC)
