The Transfer of Students Into Community Colleges.
Heinze, Michael C.; Daniels, Jack L.
The idea of the community college as a second chance or "salvage" institution is discussed in this report. The study explores: (1) how many reverse transfer students (those who transfer from a 4-year to a 2-year institution) are enrolled in community colleges in the United States; (2) problems these students may encounter in transition; and (3) the implications the findings may have for community colleges. The survey showed that 9.44 per cent of the student populations at 46 community colleges affiliated with the American Association of Junior Colleges are reverse transfer students. It is recommended that student personnel and instructional staffs examine their methods for assisting these students and that colleges increase their institutional research in this area. (CA)
