Deng, Heping
Association for Institutional Research (NJ1)
This study examined the transfer trends for, and significant differences between, transfer students who graduated from community college career-oriented programs and students who graduated from liberal arts programs and looked at possible factors which affect these trends and differences. The results indicated students who made better grades in the Community College made better grades in the Senior College. Also, for transfers who graduated from career-oriented programs, older students and students who had been placed in remedial courses earned higher senior college GPA than their younger counterparts and students who did not attend remedial courses. For transfers who graduated from liberal arts programs, males and Hispanic students did not do as well as other students. Program Listings are appended. (Contains 1 endnote and 5 tables.)
