This document reports on enrollment, demographics, and outcomes for Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) transfers to the University of Wisconsin (UW) System. Enrollment Information presents findings on transfers within and into the UW System by year (1994-95 to 1997-98), illustrates the proportion of transfers within and into the UW System in the 1997-98 year by the type of sending institution, and shows the trend in WTCS transfers into the UW System (1991-92 to 1997-98). Demographic Information illustrates results for some demographic characteristics (WTCS and non-WTCS) of the fall 1997 cohort by student classification, full-time/part-time status based on first semester credit load, and age distribution. Outcome Information reports on average first semester GPA by type of transfer for fall 1995-fall 1997, average first year GPA by type of transfer for fall 1994-fall 1996, 5th year graduation and 6th year retention rates of WTCS transfer students, and combined 5th year graduation and 6th year retention rates for fall 1988-1991 transfer cohorts. WTCS transfers to the UW System have been increasing in recent years, both in absolute number and as a percent of all transfer students. Compared to other transfer students, WTCS students transfer in fewer credits, are older, and are more likely to enroll on a part-time basis. (VWC)
