What’s the latest on student transfer
Education Dive featured two articles this past month that address student transfer. The first article discusses how veterans are underrepresented at top US colleges. The second article examines how transfer students from community colleges fare compared to those who matriculate from high school.
- Enrolling More Veterans at High-Graduation-Rate Colleges and Universities explores barriers including transfer policies that may prevent veterans from enrolling and discusses strategies to address these barriers.
- According to a new report, Persistence: The Success of Students Who Transfer from Community Colleges to Selective Four-Year Institutions, students transferring from a community college to a four-year institution are equally or more likely to graduate in six years than students transitioning from high school.
A recent article, How one California community college allows students to skip remedial English, in Ed Source discusses how one community college is removing hurdles to transfer to four-year institutions for its students. These changes aim to push more students to graduate on time.
