The Time It Takes: A Longitudinal Study of the 2003 Cohort Eligible to Transfer to a Research Intensive University. Research Results
Lavin, Tracy
British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer
For a number of years, the Student Transitions Project (STP) has tracked the students in BC's public colleges, institutes and teaching intensive universities (CDW institutions) who are eligible to transfer (ETR) to any of the four research intensive universities in BC in the subsequent year (i.e., students who have completed or enrolled in at least 24 credits in courses listed in the BC Transfer Guide and have maintained a GPA of at least 2.00). These students have been followed from one year to the next in order to determine how many of them enroll in a research intensive university with transfer as the basis of admission. Beyond this first year, however, little is known about the educational pathways and outcomes of eligible transfer students. The BC Council on Admissions and Transfer (BCCAT) commissioned a longitudinal study of the cohort of 23,506 students who were enrolled at 19 CDW institutions in the fall of 2003 and who were eligible to transfer to a research intensive university in 2004/05. Using enrolment and credential data from the STP, these ETRs were followed up to the 2009/10 academic year to determine (a) how many transferred to research intensive universities, (b) how many remained at CDW institutions, (c) how many left the BC public post-secondary system and (d) how many and what sorts of credentials were obtained. (Contains 5 figures, 1 table, and 2 footnotes.)
