Transfer Activity of Minnesota Undergraduate Students, Academic Year 1980-81.
Minnesota Higher Education Coordinating Board, St. Paul.
A series of data tables illustrates the 1980-81 movement of undergraduates among Minnesota's postsecondary institutions and educational systems (i.e., its state university system, community colleges, area vocational-technical institutes, the University of Minnesota, proprietary schools, and private two- and four-year colleges), as well as movement between other states and Minnesota. Statistics are provided for system-to-system transfers for 1979-80 and 1980-81; system-to-institution transfers; institution-to-system transfers; and system-to-system transfers by sex and class level. An introductory section highlights findings, including the following: (1) the total number of 1980-81 transfers was 26,690, a 13% increase over 1979-80; (2) women made up 51.8% of new undergraduate transfers and constituted 50.2% of all undergraduates; (3) vocational students accounted for 25% of all undergraduate transfers; (4) the number of transfer students admitted increased in the public systems and decreased in the private two- and four-year colleges from 1979-80 to 1980-81; (5) among intrastate transfers, more students entered and left the community college system than any other system; (6) of the transfers to community colleges, 24% had attended the University of Minnesota and 23% another community college; (7) of the transfers from community colleges, 31% entered a public state university and 26% entered the University of Minnesota; and (8) 20.9% of the transfer students came from out of state.
