Philadelphia Community Coll., PA. Office of Institutional Research.
A study was conducted to determine the educational outcomes of 663 former Community College of Philadelphia (CCP) students who applied for admission to Temple University. The study focused on Temple's admission decisions and their relationship to the students' programs of study and academic performance at CCP. Study findings included the following: (1) 69% of the applicants (N=460) were admitted to Temple in fall 1984; (2) of the admitted students, 78% were matriculants and 22% were non-matriculants at Temple; (3) 33.8% of the applicants were General Studies students, and 40.1% were enrolled in career programs at CCP; (4) of the 191 (28.8%) applicants who had graduated from CCP, 86% were admitted to Temple; (5) the mean grade point average (GPA) at CCP for the transfer students was 2.69; (6) 158 former CCP students applied for admission to Temple programs in Liberal Arts, 152 students applied to Business Administration programs, and 120 applied to Allied Health programs, and 63%, 75%, and 51%, respectively, were accepted; and (7) students with higher GPA's (2.75+) were more likely to be placed on waiting lists than students with lower GPA's due to the competitive nature of the programs that many of the students with high GPA's wished to enter; and (8) 60% of the transfer students had withdrawn from only one class, or had never withdrawn from a class at CCP.
