Information provided by the University of California (UC) is used each year to assess the academic performance of those students who transferred to UC from Los Angeles City College (LACC). While no student-specific information has been provided in recent years, due to UC's compliance with the Buckley Amendment, the data illustrate the comparative grade point averages (GPA's) of two student groups: those who were eligible for entrance into the UC system directly from high school and those who were not. These data show that 129 LACC students transferred to UC in Fall 1978, representing a drop of nearly 25% from Fall 1977 and of 50% from Fall 1974. Of these students, 40 were from the eligible group, 53 from the ineligible group, and 26 admitted by special action and not charged to LACC. The average GPA for the eligible group during the first year at UC was 3.12, with 60% maintaining a "B" average or above and only 8% earning below a "C" average. Ineligibles earned an average GPA of 2.89, with 40% achieving a "B" average or above and 8% earning below a "C" average. Of the transfers, 75% attended the Los Angeles campus of the UC system. In comparison with transfer students from other California community colleges, both groups of LACC transfers performed better on measures of UC GPA, differential performance, percentage receiving a "B" average or better, and percentage earning less than a "C" average.
