Summary

Performance of 31 los Angeles city college students who achieved academic honors at the University of California at los Angeles gives further evidence that junior colleges can provide good preparation for upper-division university work. Although three quarters of these students were not eligible for the university on completion of high school, their attendance at the city college had enabled them to correct their deficiencies. There were no striking similarities in the characteristics of the students, E.g., 20 were male, five were of foreign background, their ages ranged from 20 to 54 (median age, 24, half were from los Angeles city high schools, they represented 16 different majors (six in engineering, five in art), they had a 3.29 grade point average, they averaged 65 units at lacc, and 12 received the aa degree. Of the 18 for whom school and college ability test scores were available, nine scored below the median for college freshmen in either verbal or quantitative abilities. Only two students scored in the top decile in both abilities, while five had combined verbal and quantitative scores in the top decile. Of two students who fell below a c average in their first semester at the univerisity, one was dismissed. He was subsequently reinstated and reached the dean's honor list three years later. (hh)
