Summary:
The purpose of the study was: (1) to determine why graduates of Florida public community colleges enrolled in a specific state university in Florida; (2) to determine whether graduates of Florida public community colleges enrolled in one state university for reasons that were significantly different from the reasons given by graduates of Florida public community colleges enrolling in the other state universities; (3) to determine whether graduates of Florida public community colleges enrolled in Florida upper division and graduate universities for reasons that were significantly different from the reasons given by graduates of Florida public community colleges enrolling in the other state universities in Florida; and (4) to determine which variables had the greatest influence. The two hypotheses formulated to test the basic and secondary research questions of the study were both rejected. The results of testing Hypothesis 1 inferred that graduates of Florida public community colleges enroll in state universities in the Florida State University System for reasons that are significantly different among the universities within the system. The results of testing Hypothesis 2 inferred that graduates of Florida public community colleges enroll in the four upper division and graduate universities within the Florida State University System for reasons that are significantly different from the reasons given by graduates of Florida public community colleges for enrolling in the other five state universities within the system.
