New Evidence: Five Critical, Understudied Barriers to Transfer Success

National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students (NISTS) Annual Conference
February 16, 2017
Atlanta, GA

Most entering community college students intend to transfer and earn a bachelor’s degree, yet few actually do. This session organized key findings from recent transfer research into five major obstacles to transfer success gleaned from national and state-level patterns of students’ transfer enrollments, credit accumulation, and efficient completion. Participants joined in considering areas of future research and considering the implications for transfer policy and practice.
