A Comparison of Transfer Student Outcomes at Temple, LaSalle, West Chester, Widener and Thomas Jefferson Universities: Institutional Research Report #55. CCP Student Transfer Outcomes at Widener University: Institutional Research Report #50. Former CCP Transfer Outcomes at Hahnemann University, 1987-88 School Year: In-Brief #57.
Part of a series of reports on transfer research conducted by the Community College of Philadelphia (CCP), these three reports examine transfer outcomes among former CCP students who matriculated at four-year universities in Pennsylvania. The first report compares CCP transfer student outcomes at Temple, LaSalle, West Chester, Widener, and Thomas Jefferson Universities, examining admissions outcomes, grade point averages (GPA's), program enrollment, and persistence patterns. The second report examines specific transfer outcomes among 100 former CCP students who enrolled at Widener University between fall 1984 and spring 1989, focusing on CCP program of study and credits earned, as well as persistence, graduation, and dismissal patterns at Widener. The third report provides a brief review of the transfer outcomes of 47 former CCP students accepted for the 1987-88 school year at Hahnemann University, examining retention rates and GPA's at the start of the second year. Results of the studies included the following: (1) acceptance rates for CCP students were highest at LaSalle; (2) among students attending universities that provided GPA data, students at Temple were most likely to have a GPA above 2.0; (3) graduation rates were highest at Widener University; (4) students at Widener who had earned more than 55 credits at CCP were the most likely to be dismissed from Widener for academic reasons; and (5) 82.9% of the first-year CCP transfer students at Hahnemann University earned an average GPA of 2.46 and continued on for a second year.
