Summary

A summary of the performance of Los Angeles City College (LACC) transfers to the California State University at Los Angeles (CSLA) during the 1973-74 school year, indicates that 719 (84 percent) of the 854 entrants completed some work. Their average first quarter GPA was 2.44 (-0.05 points below their LACC average of 2.49); one-third earned a "B" average or better at CSLA, while 19 percent fell below a "C" average. 38 percent of the transfers selected a major in the School of Letters and Science, 26 percent in Business and Economics, 20 percent in Fine Arts, 3 percent in Engineering; 14 percent were undecided. Highest averages were earned in courses in Education, Physical Education, and Drama. Departments offering the most difficulty were Biology, Economics, and History. Since 1975, the GPA's earned by new LACC transfers to CSLA have ranged from 2.36 to 2.60, with differentials between CSLA and LACC GPA's ranging from -0.13 to +0.21. The author concludes that students who transfer from LACC to CSLA experience little, if any, transfer shock. Tabulated data indicate the number of students transferring in each quarter of the 1973-74 school year; the academic performance of transfer students in their first quarter at CSLA according to quarter of entrance, college major, and department; and the academic performance of transfers from 1957 to 1974.
