Summary

Grade reports provided by California State University at Los Angeles (CSULA) were examined to determine the persistence of the 386 Los Angeles City College students who transferred to CSULA in Fall 1977. The reports for each quarter from Fall 1977 through Summer 1979 were analyzed in terms of the number of units attempted, the units completed, student grade point average (GPA), and student major. Major findings indicated that of the 386 transfer students, 83% completed some course work during Fall 1977, and 68% enrolled in Winter 1978. By the end of Spring 1979, 41% were still enrolled and 37% completed their courses. Students with majors in the School of Business and Economics showed the highest percentage returning for the second quarter (78%). By Fall 1978, however, majors in the Schools of Letters and Science and of Fine and Applied Arts showed higher returning percentages. Students with majors in Business and Economics had the most academic difficulty; their average GPA stayed between 1.9 and 2.1. The average GPA for students in Fine and Applied Arts increased from 2.5 to 2.7 during the two years, while Letters and Science majors fluctuated from 2.4 (Fall 1977) to 3.0 (Fall 1978) to 2.75 (Spring 1979). The study report presents findings in tables and graphs. (Author/JP)
