Enrollment and Graduation Patterns of Undergraduates Transferring to UC Davis: 1984-1999. Research Synopsis.
California Univ., Davis. Office of Student Affairs Research and Information.
This report discusses the effort put forth by the University of California (UC) at Davis and California's community colleges to reinvigorate and strengthen transfer student academic success. The report offers information on the Transfer Opportunity Program (TOP), Transfer Admission Agreements (TAA), and Transfer Articulation Agreements that exist between UC Davis and certain California community colleges. The TOP supports transfer students by placing UC admission advisors at nine community colleges to help aid the students' transition from community college to a four-year institution. UC Davis also has transfer agreements with 56 California community colleges. The report provides statistics on transfers entering UC Davis from fall 1984 through spring 1999. Findings show that approximately 36% of new undergraduates at UC Davis enter as transfers. Three-fourths of these transfers are from community colleges. About one-third (12%) of the transfers are from under-represented ethnic groups. Transfer enrollment figures are stated to have dropped steadily over the last four years. Overall, 80% of the transfers entering in fall 1984 had graduated by the end of spring 1999. The report includes 7 charts and 9 tables. (MKF)
