Graduation/Transfer Rates by Program for First Time Full Time Students [and] Graduation Rates for Middle States Annual Report Status of Three Years Later of 85 FTFT Freshmen (by Race).
McConochie, Daniel D.
These two reports provide data tables based on two studies conducted by the Maryland State Board for Community Colleges: a 1989 follow-up study of the status of fall 1982, 1983, and 1984 first-/full-time students after four years of community college enrollment, and a three-year follow-up of first-/full-time students who entered in 1985. The tables show the status of the students 3 to 4 years after entry in terms of the numbers and percentages of students who transferred to an in-state college with or without an associate of arts (AA) degree or certificate; obtained a degree or certificate but did not transfer; and were still enrolled. Total graduation and retention rates are also shown by college. For the 1985 cohort, percentages are included by race. Highlights of the study include: (1) among 1985 entrants, by 1988, 16% had transferred in Maryland without an AA, 6% had transferred in state with an AA, 15% were still enrolled, and 15% had graduated; (2) among the same group, equal percentages (14%) of blacks and whites were still enrolled three years later, however, 20% of the whites had graduated compared to 6% of the blacks; (3) among 1984 entrants, four years later, 16% had transferred in Maryland without an AA, 8% with an AA, 8% were still enrolled, and 19% had graduated; (4) among 1983 entrants, in 1987, 15% had transferred in Maryland without an AA, 7% with an AA, 8% were still enrolled, and 18% had graduated; and (5) among 1982 entrants, 4 years later, 15% transferred in Maryland without an AA, 7% with an AA, 8% were still enrolled, and 20% had graduated.
