Belcher, Marcia J.
Presenting data on the characteristics of associate degree recipients from 1991-92 and 1992-93 at Miami-Dade Community College (M-DCC), in Florida, this report provides tables for M-DCC as a whole and on the five campuses comprising the college (i.e., North, Kendall, Wolfson, Medical Center, and Homestead). First, information is presented on the entry-level skills of graduates college-wide. Then, tables are presented for M-DCC as a whole and for each individual campus indicating the number of graduates by certification type by term of completion, certification type for 1982-83 through 1992-93, year of first admission, certification type and ethnicity, certification type and gender, citizenship status, residency, and age at graduation. Tables are also presented showing a comparison of unduplicated headcount to total graduations, mean credit hours earned and attempted for 1991-92 and 1992-93, mean grade point average (GPA), and mean number of terms completed. Highlighted findings include the following: (1) systemwide, the total number of Associate in Arts graduates for 1992-93 was 3,873, compared to 1,119 Associate in Science graduates; (2) over 40% of the graduates system-wide began academically underprepared; (3) Black non-Hispanics accounted for 17% (n=884) of graduates in 1992-93, representing a 10% increase over the previous year; (4) the average age of the graduates was 25.7 years old; and (5) the mean GPA declined slightly from the previous year to 2.88.
