WTCS Transfer Information, 1996-97.
Wisconsin Technical Coll. System Board, Madison.
This document presents the annual headcount statistics on students transferring from the University of Wisconsin (UW) to the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) during the academic year 1996-97. It includes a summary narrative description of data, technical colleges accepting UW credits, demographic characteristics of transfer students, and information on the total transfer of students into the WTCS from 1992-93 through 1996-97. In academic year 1996-97, 2,671 students transferred into the WTCS from UW, with Madison and Milwaukee technical colleges accepting the largest number of transfer students. Compared with total transfers, UW students composed the highest percentage among the 20-24 age group. UW transfer students also had higher percentages than the total when reporting their highest grade completed as being 13 or more. The most interesting occurrence, which remains unexplained, was the dramatic increase in the numbers of UW and total transfers reported in the less than 15-19 group. The majority of UW transfer students were female, and the numbers of blacks and Asians remained constant after a two-year trend of increase. About 3.9% of UW transfer students were disabled. (YKH)
