Transfer Behavior among Beginning Postsecondary Students: 1989-94. Postsecondary Education Descriptive Analysis Reports. Statistical Analysis Report.
McCormick, Alexander C.; Carroll, C. Dennis
This report analyzes patterns of undergraduate transfer behavior of students who entered postsecondary education during the academic year 1989-90. Data were derived from the spring 1994 follow-up of the 1990 Beginning Postsecondary Students Longitudinal Study. The report notes that attendance at multiple institutions is widespread: at 4-year institutions almost half of beginning students enrolled elsewhere within 5 years, although only 25 percent transferred; and at community colleges, 25 percent were identified as working toward a bachelor's degree. The report data, which are summarized in 9 figures and 28 tables, and the discussion cover the following areas: (1) definition of transfer; (2) the general phenomenon of attendance at multiple institutions; (3) transfer activity in general; (4) transfer from 4-year institutions; (5) transfer from public 2-year to 4-year institutions; and (5) transfer activities, controlling for background. Three appendixes provide reference tables, a glossary, and technical notes and methodology. (Contains 12 references.) (CH)
