Summary

In order to assess the academic performance of transfer students from Los Angeles City College (LACC) to California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA), grade point averages (GPA's), completion rates, and departmental differences were calculated. Findings were based on first quarter grade reports for 691 students entering CSULA in 1977-78. Of the 691 entrants, 561 (81%) completed some work. The first quarter GPA earned by the 561 entrants was 2.47--0.18 grade points below their LACC average of 2.65. Thirty-nine percent of the students earned a "B" average or better at CSULA; 22% fell below a "C" average. Students in Engineering (3%) earned the highest GPA at CSULA (2.72), while students in Business (22%) and Education (1%) had the most difficulty, earning GPA's of 2.21 and 2.04, respectively. Highest averages (3.0 or better) were earned in courses in Music, Physical Education, Engineering, Pan-Afro Studies, and Art. Lowest averages occurred in courses in Counselor Education, Economics, and Criminal Justice. Since 1957, the GPA earned by new LACC transfers to CSULA has ranged from 2.36 to 2.60, with the differential between CSULA and LACC GPA's ranging from -0.18 to +0.21. The -0.18 differential in 1977-78 was apparently due to unusually high LACC GPA's. The number of 1977-78 transfers increased in 1976-77, stemming a five-year downward trend. (DR)
