Undergraduate Transfers Between CU-Boulder and Other Colorado Institutions, 2000-01
- Source:CCHE data table for fiscal year 2000-01 (three academic terms), distributed to Academic Council,
- CU-Boulder received a total of 1,867 transfers; this includes 182 (10% of the total) who transferred
within UCB, by going from Non-degree-seeking to Degree-seeking status (technically a transfer).
- Of the 1,867 total transfers, 882 (47%) came from outside Colorado, 397 (21%) from Colorado public
four-year institutions, 372 (20%) from community colleges in Colorado, 182 (10%) from UCB as non-degree-seeking
to degree-seeking internal transfers, and 34 (2%) from private Colorado colleges.
- Of the 372 from community colleges, 213 (57%) came from Front Range CC, making it the largest supplier of
transfers to CU-Boulder. The 372 from Colorado community colleges to UCB represent 9% of the 4,348 total
transfers from community colleges to Colorado four-years.
- Among the 397 from Colorado four-year institutions who were not internal transfers,most transfers
to UCB came from Colorado State and CU-Denver (70 each), and Metro and Northern Colorado (62 each).
- A total of 417 students transferred from UCB to other Colorado four-year publics in 2000-01.For these
students, by far the most popular destination institutions were CU-Denver (153) and Metro (140), followed
by Colorado State with 62.
- In comparison to UCB, Colorado State received a higher percentage of its transfers from community
colleges (29% vs. 20% for UCB), and a lower percentage from out of state institutions (36% vs. 47%).
CSU also had a higher percentage of internal transfers than UCB (15% vs 10%), and quite a few more total
transfers (2,623 vs. 1,867).Colorado State was the destination campus for 17% of all Colorado community
college transfers (compared to 9% for UCB), and drew 42% of its community college transfers from Front Range
- The largest single supplier of students from Colorado four-years transferring to CSU was UNC, although
these were only about 20% of the total (excluding internal transfers).The most popular destination school
for the 430 students leaving CSU for other institutions was Metro (141), followed by UCD (80) and UCB (70).
- UCB gained students in exchanges with every other Colorado public four-year except UCD, Metro, and Mesa -
twice as many students transferred from UCB to UCD and Metro as from them.This probably reflects the
importance of UCD's and Metro's location in central Denver. See below for details.
