Transfer Students

 First-year Carson Coach Kevin McCall can't wait to unveil sophomore running back Daevon Vigilant, a 5-foot-9, 190-pound punishing back who McCall said has the chance to be outstanding. Carson also could be strengthened by a group of transfer students who used to live in Carson but left for other schools, such as Compton Dominguez. The City Section is reviewing the transfer paperwork.

Students who transfer from community colleges to either the California State University system or University of California system are doing as well in school as non-transfer students, officials told a Monday press conference. The officials cited the success of transfer students as proof that the separate higher education systems are working effectively together.

California State University formally adopted a plan to reduce its 450,000 enrollment by 10,000 students because of state budget cutbacks. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has recommended a $66-million mid-year cut to the 23-campus system, the nation's largest, which recently lost $31 million in state funding. The squeeze comes as applications have jumped to their highest levels, by 20% for first-time freshmen and 36% for transfer students compared with last year. Each college must accept all qualified first-time freshmen and upper-division transfer students from their local areas but may raise the academic bar for potential students from other parts of California.

Having reached the target for transfer students' applications for the fall semester, Cal State Northridge officials said they would not accept any applications after today. Completed applications must be hand-delivered to the CSUN administrative offices, at the University Student Union on the east side of campus, by 4 p.m. today, said Lorraine Newlon, director of admissions and records. Mail-in applications must be postmarked no later than July 31, she added.

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.

For decades, high school sports programs in Southern California relied on a simple formula: teenagers in the neighborhood would show up as freshmen or sophomores, try out for a team and stick together through graduation, succeeding or failing with lifelong friends at their side. Times have changed. To win a championship at the highest level in the high-profile sports - football and basketball - you clearly need a transfer student or two. Every team that won a football or basketball championship last season in the top division of the Southern Section or City Section had transfer students playing important roles.

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)
