What We Know About Transfer Outcomes and How Colleges Can Improve Them

Date and Time: December 05, 2017 2:00 PM
Location: Online

This Data & Technology Insight webinar offered national data on institutional and statewide effectiveness in helping students to transfer from community colleges and earn bachelor's degrees and research-based recommendations for how institutions can improve outcomes. Using National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) data, the presenters summarized findings that show great variation in institutional performance, even among similar types of institutions, strongly suggesting the opportunity for institutions to improve transfer outcomes.

The presenters shared findings on institutional and partnership practices aligned to strong transfer outcomes based on visits to more than a dozen of highly effective institutions (identified using NSC data) summarized in The Transfer Playbook. Finally, presenters reviewed templates for reports colleges should generate to better understand—and inform ways to improve—transfer student outcomes.
