Student Transfers to Public and Private Colleges in California and Out-of-State.
This document presents the preliminary study reporting transfer rates from the City College of San Francisco (CCSF) to both in-state and out-of-state community colleges and baccalaureate institutions. The data are based on a match between the social security numbers of community college students enrolled in California community colleges with the social security numbers in the National Student Loan Clearinghouse database. The study tracked all first-time students at CCSF by cohort according to their year of enrollment at the college. The following findings were reported: 29 percent of the 1993 cohort transferred to baccalaureate institutions, but this figure decreased to 27 percent for the 1994 cohort, and to 20 percent for the 1995 cohort. The study states that the decline in transfer percentage may be due to the shorter amount of tracking time for the later cohorts. During the period of spring 1994 to spring 1999, 307 students transferred to out-of-state baccalaureate institutions, while 5,058 students transferred to CSU, 1,161 to the University of California and 436 to independent institutions. From the 1993, 1994, and 1995 cohorts, a significant number of students transferred to another community college, including 1,800 students transferring to other community colleges, and 144 transferring to out-of-state community colleges.
