Because of an unexpected increase in enrollment, the Fullerton School District is restating its transfer policy to make clear that principals may reject student transfer requests during the first four weeks of school. District officials said they projected that 11,007 students would be enrolled in district schools as of this week. But 11,535 students are now attending the district's 14 elementary and three junior high schools.

September 30, 1991 | PETER MORRISON, UC Irvine is rejecting thousands of transfer students because of budget constraints. PETER MORRISON, an instructor at Irvine Valley College, a community college that transfers many students to UC Irvine and other UC and Cal State University campuses, told The Times:
The 3,000 or so community college transfer students promised university admission but then left at the closed doors of UCI are victims of more than a short-term budgetary problem. No one in the "post-secondary public education business" expects anything but increasing student demand for college classes and increasingly limited public resources to meet this demand. What is needed is a wholesale reformation in the way our public colleges and universities are defined, governed, and financed.

Former Orange Coast College students now attending UC Irvine outperformed the general undergraduate population there this fall, according to OCC officials. The 507 former OCC students enrolled at UC Irvine this fall compiled a grade point average of 2.95, according to the recently released UC Irvine student characteristics summary. That compares with a campus-wide undergraduate average of 2.90. The average for all community college transfers at UC Irvine this fall was 2.89.

Re "Our Sloppy Local Colleges," editorial, June 1: You are correct when you say that the governor is not funding the community colleges nearly enough to help transfer students. But you are under-researched on several points: Not all of California's community colleges require physical education to graduate. You didn't make it clear that a two-year associate's degree is not a transfer requirement. And transfer-ready students who take full transfer-class loads can easily transfer within two years if they choose to do so (and if the four-year university accepts them)

Arguing that UCLA admissions policies are being manipulated to circumvent the state's ban on consideration of applicants' race, a professor there has resigned from a faculty committee that he says refused to allow him to study the matter. Political science professor Tim Groseclose resigned Thursday from the Committee on Undergraduate Admissions and Relations with Schools, saying high-ranking university administrators and fellow committee members are engaged in a "coverup" to block illegal activity from being discovered.

Father Tom Batsis, the new president of Encino Crespi, loves opera, plays and movies. If he didn't have to attend a single football or basketball game, he jokes, "I'd die a happy priest. " "I'm about as non-jock a jock as you're going to find," he said with a chuckle. And yet, as most principals and those in charge of high schools soon learn, it's athletics that quickly become their center of attention, whether they like it or not. Batsis made a quick, decisive judgment call last month in his fourth month on the job. Crespi's football coach of three years, Jon Mack, had decided to resign.

California's state universities are on the prowl for more out-of-state students for the extra tuition they pay.  Now Arizona State University is turning the tables on the Golden State. ASU this week opened a new recruiting, alumni and research center in Santa Monica. The location, in a mid-rise office building, has a fortuitous address: 725 N. Arizona Ave. The eight-person staff will be looking for new freshmen and transfer students, organizing alumni gatherings here, arranging internships and helping with technology transfer and venture financing for bringing Arizona State inventions to market, officials said.

It's time for the California Interscholastic Federation and its member schools to have a philosophical debate on whether it should be easy or hard for athletes to switch high schools. So far, there doesn't appear to be a whole lot of outrage in how schools are welcoming transfer students with open arms. Transfers in large numbers have been happening in Southern California for years, but a 2012 CIF statewide rule that reduced the penalty for transferring without moving from one year to one month has given parents the green light to move without worrying about consequences.

To suggest as Robert Oliphant does (Valley Commentary, March 19) that the elimination of lower divisions at all UC and CSU campuses is even possible, much less desirable, is absurd. A significant reason transfer students have higher grade point averages is the fact that a transferring student brings units and grade points to the university. Therefore, a transfer student with a community college GPA of 4.0 may maintain a GPA of only 2.1 at the university to "outperform" a four-year student maintaining a 3.0. In fact, transfer students have the highest rate of failure of all upper division categories.
