First-Year University of Washington Performance of Transfers from Other Washington State Post-Secondary Institutions. Report 79-11.
de Wolf, Virginia A.
Data on the academic performance of Washington State community college (CC) and four-year college transfers entering the University of Washington (UW) autumn quarters, 1973 to 1976, were studied. Students having attended more than one collegiate institution were eliminated, leaving samples of approximately 1,000 transfers for each quarter. Overall, the most consistent finding was the superior academic performance of the four-year transfers who had higher mean transfer and mean first-year UW grade point averages (GPAs) than CC transfers. In addition, when grouped according to number of transfer credits, those entering with greater than or equal to 75 credits achieved higher mean transfer and mean first-year UW GPAs than those having fewer than 75 credits. Data are also provided for comparable groups of UW "natives." (Author/MSE)
