“No matter how many effective transfer agreements we have in place, on paper or online, the access and success of transfer students depends ultimately on the personal, programmatic, and collaborative support they receive from faculty and staff at both the sending and receiving institution.”
Disappointing discrepancies currently exist between the number of two-year college students who intend to transfer to four-year colleges and those who actually do. This discrepancy becomes even more disconcerting when viewed in light of the current economic climate, which is increasing number of students who choose to enter higher education at lower-cost community colleges, particularly low-income, first-generation students. Adopting effective strategies to facilitate successful “vertical transfer” from two-year to four-year campuses will benefit both types of institutions in terms of enrollment management and performance-based funding, but most importantly, will benefit students aspiring to achieve a baccalaureate degree.
