Interstate Passport student transfer destination by state website now includes 2012 cohort data
The Student Transfer Destinations by State website demonstrates transfer patterns of students across all 50 states and territories based on data secured from the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center (NSCRC). As the Interstate Passport Network has grown to a nationwide program with 30 members in 12 different states, this site has been expanded to include national transfer student data sets for the 2006, 2008, 2010, and now the 2012 cohorts. The website serves as a dynamic tool to demonstrate, over time, the transfer trends among cohorts, as well as to provide a visual display of where students are transferring to and from across state lines. In addition, a print/export feature has been added which allows viewers to print and export figures as data is viewed on the site. “We are excited to add the 2012 cohort data to the website. We can now provide viewers with snapshots of student transfer trends and patterns nationwide over a twelve year period. It is our goal, as new data becomes available from NSC for other cohorts to add it and continue to learn more about intrastate and interstate transfer over time,” said Patricia Shea, director of academic leadership initiatives at WICHE where the Interstate Passport’s operations are based.
