Focusing primarily on the period from 1988 to 1990, this articulation report provides information on students enrolled in Florida's State University System (SUS) who, prior to enrolling in their respective universities, attended one of Florida's 28 public community colleges. Following an overview of articulation in Florida, a series of 15 tables are provided, presenting information on students' sex, race, age, date of entry into the university, hours of credit transferred, and hours of credit earned at the university; the SUS enrollment rate of former community college students; grade point averages (GPA's); student majors; and the performance of associate in arts graduates at SUS. Highlighted findings include the following: (1) in fall 1990, there were 64,054 former community college students at SUS, an increase of over 18% compared to 1988; (2) in 1990, female students represented 56% of the total transfers from community colleges; (3) the percentage of white transfer students decreased by 1.6%, while the percentage of minority students increased slightly; (4) 82.5% of the 1990 group transferred 60 semester hours or more to the SUS; and (5) 68.2% of the transfer students earned a GPA of 2.50 or better while enrolled in the SUS, an increase from 65.4% in 1988.
