Profile of B.C. College Transfer Students Admitted to the University of British Columbia, 1992/93 to 1996/97.
Rozon, Lori; Sudmant, Walter; Lambert-Maberly, Ashley
This report presents the first comprehensive profile of the nearly six-thousand students who entered the University of British Columbia (Canada) as British Columbia (BC) college transfer students between 1992/93 and 1996/97. Section A presents a profile of BC college transfer students by: year of admission, transfer credits, first-year workload, full-time/part-time status, faculty of intended major, degree goal, program of study, age, gender, college, region, and lower mainland public colleges. Section B looks at quality/academic performance of BC college transfer students by: admission percentages; academic performance at admission, and percentages after first, second, and last session; grades in selected courses; and degree completion rate. Section C examines the profile of BC college transfer students who have graduated by: session average for last year; grade point average at admission, and after first, second, and last session; graduation degree specialization; credential awarded; credential awarded and average number of years to complete; and session average for last year. The study is modeled on a similar study first completed by Simon Fraser University in October 1996. Hence report designs and definitions are, as much as possible, intended for comparison with the Simon Fraser study. (VWC)
