A recent article Inside Higher Ed featured an article that examines the reasons behind how and why transfer students are selecting the institutions that they intend to enroll at for further education.
A recent article in The Chronicle of Higher Education discusses a variety of partnerships and strategies that 2-Year and 4-Year institutions are utilizing to better serve students in the transfer process. More than a third of college students transfer at least once, but 43 percent of the credits they earn are lost in the process, according to a report issued last year by the federal Government Accountability Office.
