State Univ. of New York, Albany. Office of Institutional Research and Analytical Studies.
The tenth annual study of the application and enrollment patterns of transfer students at any institutions of the State University of New York (SUNY) during fall 1979 is presented. Transfer students are defined as undergraduates who were enrolled at a SUNY institution for the first time in a given fall term, but who had previously attended another college. Following the introduction, a summary of data and an index by coordinating area are provided. Part I reports on transfer students by prior institution and student level and offers related summaries on such areas as admission success, trends of transfer students, and enrollment patterns. Part II reports on university centers, university colleges, health sciences centers, specialized colleges, statutory colleges, agricultural and technical colleges, and community colleges. An addendum section tabulates trends in full-time undergraduate credit course transfer students at SUNY senior institutions, fall 1973 through fall 1979, and in transfers to senior institutions from two-year institutions as related to the number of associate degree recipients. General findings include such information as (1) a total of 17,340 transfer students were enrolled in the fall of 1979 at SUNY institutions, and represented 8.5 percent of the total undergraduate enrollment for the term, and (2) the majority of transfer students continued to come from institutions within the state university system (53.4 percent). Appendices include: footnote references, a map of SUNY institutions, chronology of dates of establishment of State University institutions and a publication list. (LC)
