Los Rios Community College District RESEARCH Brief, 1999-2000.
These nine research briefs address various internal and external issues affecting Los Rios Community Colleges (California). Featured topics during 1999-2000 academic year include: joining the National Student Loan Clearinghouse to improve financial aid services, the decline of student transfers from Los Rios to California public universities, the projected population growth in the college district service area, new high school graduates and their enrollments in the Los Rios Community College District (LRCCD), a demographic profile of disabled students receiving campus support services, a demographic and outcomes profile of distance education students, the 1998-99 academic year profile of degrees and certificates awarded to LRCCD students, Student-Right-to-Know Program completion, and transfer rates. Data released by the California Postsecondary Education Commission for 1998-99 show that the number of student transfers from Los Rios to the CSU and UC declined for the fourth consecutive year. One of the strategies for consideration to improve the transfer picture is to assure that literature and academic requirements for student transfer are clearly written, up-to-date, and shared with every new high school graduate enrolling who has indicated transfer as a goal. Community colleges have control over local initiatives in support of student transfer. Establishing such initiatives may go far in reversing the transfer decline. Contains tables and graphs. (JA)
