​​Unpacking the Transfer Playbook: How Colleges Can Improve Transfer Outcomes

Date and Time: April 04, 2017 10:45 AM–12:00 PM
Location: Portland, ME
Venue: Westin Harborview

Drawing on National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) data tracking an entering community college cohort, this keynote offered a national perspective on institutional and statewide effectiveness in helping students to transfer and earn bachelor's degrees. Results show great variation in institutional performance, even among similar types of institutions.​ ​The ​​Transfer Playbook, published in May 2016, documents the practices of pairs of two- and four-year institutions identified nationally (using NSC data) as very successful in helping students to transfer and earn bachelor's degrees. Based on visits to more than a dozen of these highly effective institutions, findings from The Transfer Playbook were unpacked.
