Enrollment and Graduation Patterns of Undergraduates Transferring to UC Davis, 1976-1989. Research Synopsis: Student Affairs Research and Information No. 34.
Yaklin, Bernard P.
Between fall 1976 and spring 1989, over 21,000 transfer students entered the University of California at Davis (UCD). Transfers included all students who entered the university with sophomore standing, who entered with advanced standing or whose source school was not a high school. Selected data on these students included the following: (1) during the 13-year period, 37% of UC's new undergraduates were transfers, though the proportion of transfers fell from half to less than one-third of the new undergraduates; (2) the proportion of non-white transfers doubled from 14% in 1976-77 to 31% in 1988-89; (3) among new undergraduates, 36% of the women and 39% of the men were transfers; (4) 64% transferred as juniors and about 28% transferred as sophomores between 1976-1989; (5) 62% of all students and 66% of non-white students transferring from fall 1980 through spring 1989 came from community colleges; (6) among transfers who enrolled from fall 1976 through spring 1986, 71% earned degrees; (7) 71% of the students who transferred to UCD between fall 1976 and spring 1986 graduated, and over one-half of non-white transfer students eventually graduated from UCD; and (8) among students transferring as juniors, 76% graduated from UCD, a substantially higher rate than those of freshman (50%) and sophomore (66%) transfers.
