Results of the University of Oregon Student Transfer Questionnaire, 1982-83.
Jordan, Sue A.
In spring 1983, a study was conducted to identify the problems and concerns of former Lane Community College (LCC) students who had transferred to the University of Oregon during the 1982-83 academic year. A five-page questionnaire was mailed to 312 former LCC students, requesting information on student characteristics, curriculum and articulation, and the availability of information on transfer and student personnel services. Study findings, based on responses from 54.6% of the students, included the following: (1) 77% of the former students were attending the university full-time; (2) over half were enrolled in a program related to their major at LCC; (3) the two main reasons for enrolling at LCC were financial (75.2%) and preference for a community college for lower division work (51.6%); (4) of those students earning more than 90 credits at LCC, 80% had all of their credits accepted at the university; (5) while 60.6% of the students had a grade point average of at least 3.25 at LCC, only 39.5% maintained this average at the university; (6) 79.4% of the students were at least somewhat aware of the university requirements prior to transfer; and (7) the main suggestion for improving the transfer process was more individual contact with LCC counselors. Appendices include the survey instrument and student comments and suggestions. (HB)
