Indicator 2.4.2New freshman to new transfer ratios
2000-01 to 2009-10
UC prioritizes transfer enrollment. Since 1994, the fall enrollment of new California Community College (CCC) upper-division transfers has increased 79 percent (from 8,681 to 15,572) and is approaching UC's stated goal of one transfer for every two freshman.
The Master Plan calls for UC to accommodate all eligible California Community College (CCC) transfer students. It specifies that the University maintain a 60:40 ratio of upper-division (junior- and senior- level to lower-division (freshman- and sophomore-level) students in order to ensure spaces for CCC transfers. Students transferring into the upper-division from the CCC's are crucial to maintaining this balance. To do so, UC should enroll one new transfer student for each two new freshmen.
