Transfer students from Los Angeles City College (LACC) are considered in terms of their eligibility to enter the University of California, i.e., their class standing at high school graduation, and their comparative performances at the University and LACC. Comparable data for all California community colleges are also provided. University of California reports provide numbers of Fall entrants, by campus attended, for eligibles and ineligibles, and a summary of academic performance which includes grade point average (GPA) earned at the community college and first year GPA earned at the University. From 1966 to 1977, over 2,500 LACC students transferred to the University of California in the Fall quarters. Entrants in Fall 1977 totaled only 169, continuing a downward trend apparent since 1974. Over 80% of the transfers from 1973 to 1977 were ineligible to attend the University directly from high school. LACC consistently sent a proportionately higher number of ineligibles than the community colleges statewide, 84% in 1977 as compared to 55% statewide. University GPA's of community college eligibles remained between 2.8 and 2.9 from 1970 to 1977; GPA's of ineligibles has generally been about .15 grade points lower than that of eligibles. Data tables comprise the bulk of the report. (MB)
