Wells went on to present information indicating that more than 90% of students who transfer to a four year institution choose to transfer to the University of Wyoming. Of those students who transfer to UW, the data supports that they are academically well prepared based on the grade point average (GPA) of first semester grades achieved after they transfer (average 3.02 GPA).
“Students who transfer from CWC achieve a GPA above that of students who transfer from other community colleges or even slightly better than those students who have been at UW for their first two years of study,” said Wells. “This assures us that our graduates are arriving at UW well prepared to continue their education to the bachelor’s level.”
“This data confirms that our students are receiving a quality education and exiting CWC with the tools they need to perform at the next level,” said President Brad Tyndall.
“This report is certainly impressive,” said acting Board Chair Nicole Schoening. “It confirms that CWC faculty are academically preparing our students and exciting to know that they are performing so well at UW.”
