New Community College Transfer Students at California Public Universities. A California Postsecondary Education Commission Factsheet.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
This factsheet examines the enrollment trends of community college students who transferred to California's public institutions. The opportunity for California students to begin a postsecondary education at a community college and transfer to a four-year institution to complete a baccalaureate degree is a major cornerstone of California's Master Plan for Higher Education. In 1999-200l, 13 of the 22 California State University campuses increased their enrollment of new community college transfer students, and all but 2 of the University of California campuses experienced increases in the number of community college transfer students enrolled. Community college transfers account for about 72% of the entering undergraduate transfer population at the California State University and about 72% of the entering transfer population at the University of California. Data in this factsheet suggest that the decline in the annual number of community college transfers to the public universities may be beginning to reverse. (SLD)
