The Los Angeles Times reports today on a proposed initiative by the U.C. regents to increase transfers from all community colleges.
The article points out that the "numbers are so lopsided that just 19 colleges sent half of all the 13,999 community college transfers to UC campuses last year and 93 other schools made up the other half."
Among the top ten transfer colleges are Saddleback and Irvine Valley coming in at 9 and 10 respectively, Saddleback with 328 UC transfer and IVC, the little college in the orange groves that could, coming in with 310, just 18 fewer than its "big sister."

Cal Community Colleges Chancellor's Office Transfer Data
The data re SOCCCD student transfers to Cal State Universities is slightly less alarming:
IVC: almost 3%On the other hand, rates (of transfer to CSU) at other local community colleges are much higher:
OCC: almost 6%No doubt, proximity plays into these figures. Both OCC and Fullerton are relatively near CSUs. IVC, of course, is very near UCI, which might explain its relatively high rate of transfer there.
So, here at IVC, about 5% of our students transfer to either UC or CSU. That's 1 in 20, or about two students per class.
Tranfers to In-state private [ISP] and out-of-state [OOS] Baccalaureate Granting Institutions:
RECORDS FOR 2009-2010
Irvine Valley College:
In-state private: 152
Based on the figures I'm seeing, as of about a year ago, about 7% of IVC students transferred to some kind of Baccalaureate granting institution (ISPs, OOSs, UCs, CSUs).
Orange Coast College:
That's a little better than 3 students per classroom.
Again, gee willikers.
