Student Transfers to the California State University and University of California: 1997 Report.
Glyer-Culver, Betty M.; Beachler, Judith
The eighth in a series of reports, prepared by the Office of Institutional Research, regarding transfer students from California's Los Rios Community College District, this document provides longitudinal data on transfers from the District's three colleges (i.e., American River College (ARC), Cosumnes River College (CRC), and Sacramento City College (SCC)) to the University of California (UC) and California State University (CSU) systems. The analysis covers the period from 1986-87 to 1995-96, with detailed data provided on the numbers and characteristics of transfers in the 1994-95 and 1995-96 academic years. Following a brief introduction, the numbers of transfers to UC and CSU are discussed, indicating that transfers to UC increased by 1% in 1994-95 and by another 1.4% in 1995-96 and that transfers to CSU increased from 2,349 in 1993-94 to 2,485 in 1994-95 but decreased to 2,320 in 1995-96. Next, data are provided on minority student transfers, indicating that minority transfers increased by 23.5% between 1993-94 and 1994-95, but decreased by 2.1% in 1995-96. Trends in minority transfers over the past 5 years are then discussed for each District college, indicating that in 1995-96 29.8% of all transfers from ARC were minorities, compared to 46.9% at CRC and 60% at SCC. In contrast, during that same 5 year period, the proportion of white student transfers steadily declined for each of the years: from 68.1% in 1991-92 to 55.8% for 1995-96. Finally, a discussion is provided of minority proportions in the District area population, enrollments, and transfers as of July 1995. (BCY)
