Community College Students Who Earned Baccalaureate Degrees in Maryland, 1981 to 1987.
Keller, Mike; And Others
Data are presented on the characteristics of community college transfer students who earned baccalaureate degrees in Maryland between 1981 and 1987. Tables and graphs cover the transfer status (i.e., native, community college transfer, four-year college transfer, or out-of-state transfer) of baccalaureate recipients, of graduates who were Maryland residents, of graduates who re-enrolled in college, and of graduates who reported that they planned to earn an advanced degree. In addition, transfer and native students are compared in terms of percentage of females, mean annual salary, graduating institution, percentage seeking employment, percentage who owed no money on loans, debt of those who borrowed money to attend college, and racial composition. Highlighted findings include the following: (1) during the 1980's, approximately 50% of the graduates of Maryland four-year public colleges had transferred from another campus, and 23% to 28% of the graduates had transferred from a Maryland community college; (2) transfers were slightly more likely to be male, white, and Maryland residents at the time of graduation; (3) transfers tended to be older than native students; (4) native students were more likely to have re-enrolled in college after graduation, and had slightly higher post-graduate degree aspirations; (5) one year after graduation, transfers had higher median annual salaries than native students; and (6) at graduation, transfers owed less on college loans than native students.
