Facilitating the Transfer of Community College EOPS Students to California's Public Universities. Report of a Task Force Representing the California State Department of Finance, the Office of the Legislative Analyst, the California Community Colleges, the California State University, the University of California, and the California Postsecondary Education Commission. Convened in Response to Assembly Bill 3775 (1984). Commission Report 85-19.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
California's Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS), which provides services and financial aid to community college students who transfer to public four-year colleges, was evaluated by an intersegmental task force, which offered 12 recommendations to improve EOPS and the transfer process. After outlining EOPS goals, services, and student eligibility criteria, information is provided on California State University and University of California services for EOPS transfer students and relations between community college EOPS and the universities' programs. Three types of proposals are discussed: (1) general institutional improvement of transfer opportunities; (2) improved interprogram compatibility and incentives to attract and serve transfer students; and (3) operational improvements of each program to facilitate transfer. Specific concerns include: differential eligibility criteria, low priority of the California State University program to serve EOPS transfers, educational costs and financial assistance, effective and timely transfer counseling, stronger academic preparation, culture shock experienced by EOPS students, and sharing information about the academic performance of EOPS students. Appended are Assembly Bill 3775 and a questionnaire used to survey program directors. (SW)
