Transfer Ratios: Ranking the California Community Colleges on Transfer and Institution Size.
Karpp, Edward R.
A study was undertaken to rank the California Community Colleges according to a transfer ratio determined by the number of transfers compared to institution size. For each college, transfer ratios were computed by dividing the college's fall 1992 credit enrollment by the number of transfers from the college in the 1993-94 academic year. Four transfer ratios were computed for each college: one for transfers to University of California (UC) schools, one for transfers to California State University (CSU) schools, one for transfers to independent institutions, and one for total number of transfers. Data for the study were obtained from the "Report on Enrollment, 1990-92" of the Chancellor's Office of the California Community Colleges and the California Postsecondary Education Commission's "Student Profiles, 1995." The top five California Community Colleges in terms of transfer ratio to UC schools were Santa Barbara, Santa Monica, Cabrillo, Diablo Valley, and Orange Coast. The top five colleges in terms of transfer to CSU schools were Gavilan, Cuesta, Chabot, Fresno, and West Valley. The top five colleges in terms of transfer to independent schools were Palo Verde, Marin, San Mateo, De Anza, and Skyline. Finally, the top five colleges for transfers to all of the above categories were Gavilan, Cuesta, Santa Barbara, Chabot, and Diablo Valley. (KP)
