Transfer Students' Academic Performance at the University of California and the California State Universities and Colleges and Other Related Information.
Slark, Julie; Bateman, Harold
In 1982, a study was conducted to assess the academic performance of former Santa Ana College (SAC) students who transferred to the California State Universities and Colleges (CSUC) system or to the University of California (UC) system in 1980-81 or 1981-82. The study revealed that while the total number of SAC students attending the CSUC system has remained fairly constant over the past five years, the number of new transfer students from SAC has declined by 26%. Of the 1,241 SAC students transferring to the CSUC system in 1980-81 and 1,184 transferring in 1981-82, over 50% were men, most transferred before age 30, and most were full-time day students when they attended SAC. The CSUC transfer students' grade point average at the senior institutions was 2.67 in 1980-81 and 2.69 in 1981-82; while their GPA at SAC was 2.89 in 1980-81 and 2.81 in 1981-82. Of the CSUC transfer students, 72% attended CSU Fullerton, where most majored in Engineering, Computer Science, Communications, or Business Administration and Management. In fall 1980, the last year for which UC transfer data were available, 43 former SAC students transferred to the UC system. The average UC GPA for former SAC students during this year was above 2.25 for every campus. The study report includes tables providing data by UC and CSUC campus. (DAB)
