Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Office of Institutional Research and Analysis.
Data were collected on the number of transfer students from six of Hawaii's community colleges (i.e., Honolulu, Kapiolani, Kauai, Leeward, Maui, and Windward) who earned degrees at the University of Hawaii at Manoa (UHM). The data, obtained from UHM's Admissions and Records Office and student enrollment reports, reveal that the number of graduates with community college backgrounds increased from 530 in 1974-75 to 936 in 1979-80. Of the 936 graduates with community college backgrounds, 40% had Arts and Science majors, 14% Business Administration majors, 14% Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources majors, and 14% Education majors. Among these 936 graduates, 73 earned advanced degrees, accounting for 6% of the total number of UHM graduates earning advanced degrees. The remaining 863 graduates comprised 30% of the total number of UHM graduates receiving baccalaureate and associate degrees and certificates. The UHM college which had the largest proportion of community college transfer students receiving advanced degrees was the College of Education, where 21 of the 73 advanced degrees were awarded. The bulk of the report is composed of data tables which present graduation figures by major for the community college transfers as a whole and for graduates by community college of origination. The data cover the years 1974-75 through 1979-80. An appended table presents information on University of Hawaii at Hilo graduates with community college backgrounds for 1979-80. (HB)
