Summary

Grade reports supplied by California State University at Los Angeles (CSULA) for the 1978-79 academic year were used to assess the academic performance of the 503 Los Angeles City College (LACC) students who transferred to CSULA in Fall 1978, Winter 1979, Spring 1979, and Summer 1979. These data indicate that 23% of the transfer students failed to complete any work at CSULA during their first quarter; 57% of them withdrew without penalty. Of the 388 students who completed some work, 37% earned a "B" average or better, and 21% fell below the "C" level. Highest grade point averages (GPA's) were earned in Pan Afro studies, Music, Physical Education, and Spanish; lowest grades (below 2.25) were earned in Physics, Criminal Justice, Business, and Geography. While the average pre-transfer GPA for students (2.67) was the highest in 12 years, the average GPA earned by these students after transfer to CSULA (2.43) was the lowest for the 12-year period; the most significant decline was registered by students enrolled in the School of Letters and Science. A decline was also seen in the number of transfers who completed work--the 1978-79 figure is less than half of that from 1969-70 and is a 30% decrease from 1977-78. Graphs and tables illustrating the academic performance of LACC transfer students at CSULA since 1968 are provided. (JP)
