Summary

Studies were conducted at Delta College (Michigan) to assess the academic achievement of Delta students after they had transferred to four-year institutions and to aassess the transfer students' perceptions of Delta and of the transfer experience. In September 1983 and November 1985, statistical information on transfer students was gathered from each of the 15 Michigan public four-year colleges and universities. In 1986, a survey of 1,856 transfer students currently in attendance at the four-year institutions was conducted. Study findings, based on statistical data provided by 13 institutions, and survey responses provided by 942 (53.16%) of the transfer students, included the following: (1) in the 1983 and 1985 studies, 97% of the Delta students earned at least a 2.0 grade point average (GPA) prior to transfer and 85% earned a 2.0 GPA or better for the first term after transferring; (2) over 50% of the transfers had completed at least the equivalent of 1.5 years (46 credits) of acceptable credit prior to transfer; (3) the number of Delta transfer students reported by the four-year institutions increased by 35% between the 1983 and 1985 surveys; (4) 82% of the students attended Delta within three years of the 1986 survey; and (5) nearly 65% of the transfer students were pursuing a different program of study from their Delta major. Student comments and the survey instrument are included. (UCM)
