Illinois Community College System Transfer Study.
Illinois Community Coll. Board, Springfield.
In order to provide information about community college student transfer behavior, this study examines results from a series of freshman cohorts. It describes trends in student transfer from Illinois community colleges to four-year institutions between fall 1990 and spring 1995. The primary transfer rate and selected secondary rates from the Transfer Rate Model for the Illinois Public Community College system formed the basis of the analysis. As anticipated, transfer results varied based on the group of entering students being tracked. Full-time enrollment was identified as a key characteristic of those students who transferred. The report includes transfer rates based on entering baccalaureate/transfer students, with respect to race, age, gender, university level, major, and secondary transfer rates, with a focus on student intent. Appendixes include information about cohort selection criteria, and tables of data for transfers and entering students. (Contains 22 references.) (AS)
