Transfer Status and Graduation Rates of HCCC Students Who Transfer to New Jersey Senior Public Institutions. Hudson County Community College Research Profiles.
This Hudson County Community College (HCCC), New Jersey, Research Profile examines the transfer/graduation careers of three recent cohorts of HCCC students at New Jersey public colleges/universities. Over three-quarters of HCCC students who transfer to public institutions in New Jersey transfer with freshman status. In contrast, fewer than 10% of transfers do so with junior status. For the 3 cohorts, between 46% and 55% of the transfer students graduated within 6 years. For freshman and sophomore transfers, the native graduation rate is higher than the rate for NCCC students, with a 10% difference in graduation rates between native students and NCCC students for freshman transfers: 60.14% of native freshmen graduated within 6 years, while 50.5% of freshman HCCC transfers graduated within 6 years. A more in-depth analysis of who transfers during the first year may provide some indications for intervention prior to transfer. The data presented are based on cohorts at HCCC during the limited period of 1993-1995. During the past 5 years, the Liberal Arts program has become the largest in terms of enrollment and has accounted for one-third (100 of 298) of fiscal year 2002 degrees. This growth, coupled with the institution of an Honors program, may result in different transfer/graduation patterns for more recent HCCC cohorts. (Author/NB)
