A Profile of Summer 2000 Guest Students at Community College of Philadelphia. IR Report #114.
Philadelphia Community Coll., PA. Office of Institutional Research.
This report presents a profile of summer 2000 guest students at Community College of Philadelphia (CCP) (Pennsylvania). Many students taking summer courses at CCP attend college elsewhere during the academic year. During summer 2000, approximately 950 students were guest students at CCP. Approximately 10% of the students who took credit courses at CCP during the first summer session were guest students; 37% during the mid-summer session were students elsewhere; and 16% during the second summer session were guest students. Overall, guest students were most likely to be from Drexel University (13.1%). Penn State and Temple universities ran a distant second and third to Drexel (7.2% and 6.0% respectively). Most students noted that price advantage was a factor that entered into their decision to take a summer course at CCP. A recognition that the credits they were accruing during the summer would transfer to their college/university, and the availability of courses were also reasons that motivated a good portion of summer students to take classes at CCP. Regardless of session, approximately 75% of the courses taken by guest students were located on the main campus. (JA)
