Focusing on the transfer function at Diablo Valley College (DVC), in California, this report offers 1991 and 1992 transfer data drawn from reports issued by the University of California (UC), the California State University (CSU), and the Los Angeles-based Center for the Study of Community Colleges (CSCC). Following introductory materials, the UC report on fall 1991 and 1992 transfers is reviewed, indicating that 70% of the DVC students who applied to UC in fall 1992 were admitted, compared to 72% for all California community colleges; most of DVC's transfers were to UC Davis and Berkeley; of the DVC students who were admitted to a UC school, 231 were female, 245 were male, 8 were African-American, 88 were Asian, 37 were Hispanic, and 18 were Filipino; and compared to proportions in enrollments and DVC's service region in 1989, a smaller number of African-Americans transferred to UC in 1992 than might be expected, while larger than expected numbers of Asians, Hispanics, and Filipinos did so. Data generated by the CSU for 1992-93 are then reviewed, indicating that DVC transferred 37 African-American, 58 Hispanic, and 90 Asian students to CSU in 1992, and that based on 1989 enrollments a larger number of African-Americans transferred to CSU than expected, while smaller than expected numbers of Hispanic and White students did so. Finally, data from the CSCC are outlined, showing that DVC had a transfer rate of 42% for fall 1992, compared to 22% for all the 61 colleges participating in the CSCC study. (KP)
