In fall 1981, a study was conducted of the 386 Los Angeles City College (LACC) students who transferred to the California State University at Los Angeles (CSULA) in fall 1977. The study, which examined student persistence through the third year after transfer and determined graduation rates, was a follow-up to an earlier study of student persistence through the first two years. Information on units attempted and completed, grade point average (GPA), declared major, and division in which enrolled was obtained from CSULA quarterly reports to LACC, while graduation statistics were determined using CSULA commencement programs for 1978 through 1981. Selected findings include the following: (1) three years after transferring, 24% of the students were still in attendance at CSULA; (2) by spring 1980, 17% of the students had received a bachelor's degree and by spring 1981, 25% had earned the degree; (3) bachelor's degrees were awarded for 31 different majors in five schools; the most frequently awarded were degrees in business; (4) 52% of the degrees were awarded to females, who constituted 48% of the study group; and (5) while students in the School of Business and Economics had average GPA's significantly below those in other schools in the first two years, the gap closed somewhat during the third year. The study report details methodology and findings and includes extensive data tables. Selected findings from the two-year persistence study are included for comparison. (Author/KL)
