San Diego State University (SDSU) Dual Admission Program: First Semester Assessment of Students Enrolled at SDCCD--Fall 2002.
San Diego Community Coll. District, CA. Research and Planning.
This document describes results of a study of the Dual Admission Programs for San Diego State University (SDSU) during fall 2002. The program is designed for first-time freshmen in the SDSU regional service area who meet the following conditions: (1) Meet the California State University (CSU) admission requirements; (2) Do not meet SDSU's selective criteria; and (3) Require remediation determined by English and Math assessment. Under the provisions of the program, students receive dual admission to SDSU and a local community college, and they must complete their remedial requirements at the community college within 1 year (including summer) prior to enrolling at SDSU. The demographic variables utilized in the study included gender, ethnicity, age, income level, first generation college student status, and full-time/part-time attendance. Academic performance indicators included units attempted, units completed, successful course completion rates, and term GPA. Of 105 dual admission students enrolled at three community colleges, 56 successfully completed their remedial requirements during the first semester and were eligible to enroll at SDSU the following semester. Only 33 of those students did so, however. Twenty-three students opted to remain at the community college for reasons ranging from monetary considerations to change in education plans. (JS)
