Allbright, Anita; Morris, Cathy
A series of data tables is presented, summarizing the number of Miami-Dade Community College (M-DCC) students who, at the end of Fall 1980, fell into each of six categories of academic progress: "clear,""warning,""probation,""suspension,""dismissal," and "extended probation." The data, which are organized by campus and by ethnic group, indicate that of the 43,797 M-DCC students enrolled during Fall 1980, 89.4% fell into the "clear" category, representing a 1% increase from the year before. As for the other categories, 3.5% of the students received academic warnings, 2.6% were on probation, 2.6% were suspended, 1.1% were on extended probation, and 0.8% were dismissed. The percentage of Black non-Hispanic students in the "warning,""probation,""suspension," and "dismissal" categories (15%) was higher than the percentage of Hispanic and White non-Hispanic students in these categories (11.1% and 7.9%, respectively). However, in comparison with Fall 1979 figures, the number of Black non-Hispanic students in the "clear" category increased 3.2%, while the number of Hispanic and White non-Hispanic students in this category increased by only 1%. The report includes a brief summary of variations in the data between M-DCC's four campuses. (JP)
