CCP Transfer Outcomes at West Chester University. Institutional Research Report #49.
Based on admissions, academic performance and persistence outcomes data provided by West Chester University, this report analyzes the performance and success rates of former Community College of Philadelphia (CCP) students who applied to or attended the university between 1986 and 1990. The first section contains information on application, admission, and matriculation patterns of 189 CCP students who applied to West Chester between fall 1986 and fall 1989. The next section contains data on West Chester academic and persistence levels for spring 1989 and fall 1989 transfers. The third section focuses on 34 new CCP transfer students who enrolled in the fall 1986 and fall 1987, comparing results with student outcomes from other feeder school categories. An appended supplement contains outcomes data for transfers who were enrolled in spring 1990. Study findings included the following: (1) CCP transfer student acceptance rates were 70% between 1986 and 1989; (2) 47.4% of the transfer students who matriculated between 1986 and 1989 earned grade point averages (GPA's) below 2.0 at West Chester; (3) among the transfer students enrolled at West Chester in the spring and fall 1989, the greatest proportion were enrolled in Liberal Studies; (4) fall 1986 and fall 1988 transfer student graduation rates were comparable to the graduation rates of transfers from other two-year institutions but lower than graduation rates from other feeder categories; and (5) the median GPA for the 87 CCP transfer students enrolled in spring 1990 was 2.53.
