In order to provide a longitudinal look at the characteristics of students earning the associate of arts degree (AA) at Los Angeles City College (LACC), selected statistics were gathered on LACC graduates over the 15-year period, 1964-1979, in terms of number of graduates, percentage of total enrollment, sex, those completing work in the spring semester, and majors at graduation by department and category. In addition, LACC was compared to other California community colleges. Study findings relative to LACC include: the maximum number of AA degrees was awarded in 1976 when 1,719 students received the degree; the number of graduates averaged between five percent and ten percent of the spring enrollment; about 33 percent of the graduates completed their work in the fall, as opposed to the spring, semester; since 1972, more females than males have received AA's; the number of degrees awarded in business and vocational areas has increased in the past 15 years; in fine arts, has remained stable; in communications, sciences, and social sciences, has decreased. Statewide comparisons reveal: in fall 1977, enrollments ranged from 558 to 31,671 (LACC ranked 15th); the ratio of graduates to fall enrollment ranged from 2.2 percent to 16.3 percent (LACC ranked 38th); the number of full-time faculty ranged from 13 to 363 (LACC ranked 5th); and the ratio of enrollment to full-time faculty ranged from 22 to 1,263 (LACC ranked 42nd from the lowest).
