Student Transfers to the California State University and University of California: 1995 Report.
Beachler, Judith A.
Since 1986-87, California's Los Rios Community College District (LRCCD) has annually collected data on students who transfer from the District's three colleges (i.e., American River College (ARC), Cosumnes River College (CRC), and Sacramento City College (SCC)) to the California State University (CSU) and the University of California (UC) systems. For the 1995 study, data were collected on the number of new transfers between 1986-87 and 1993-94, the characteristics of transfer students between 1991-92 and 1993-94, and the academic performance of all District transfers to CSU. Study findings include the following: (1) in 1993-94, 2,766 LRCCD students transferred to CSU and UC institutions, up 1% from 1992-93; (2) in 1993-94, the number of students who transferred to UC declined by 17.4% from the previous year, but the number of CSU transfers increased by 5.1%; (3) the number of ethnic minority transfers from LRCCD colleges increased by 5.9% between 1991-92 and 1993-94; (4) of the 2,766 transfers to UC and CSU campuses, 49.3% were from ARC, 37% were from SCC, and 13.7% were from CRC; and (5) while 88.2% of all fall 1992 state community college transfers to CSU persisted to spring 1993, 90.4% of the ARC, 90% of CRC, and 91.5% of SCC transfers did so.
