An Investigation of Student's Perception of the Process of Transferring to MSU.
Preus, Paul K.
This study investigates various aspects of the process of transferring to Memphis State University (MSU) as perceived by the transfer student, develops information which could be utilized in evaluating the processes of transfer to MSU, and provides a basis for further study. A random sample of 126 students was selected as subjects for individual interviews. Recommendations suggest: (1) creation of an office which has primary responsibility for working with transfers; (2) Re-title and re-define the Office of High School Relations to include recruitment of transfers; (3) prepare packets of information which can be provided to potential studetns; (4) provide mechanisms for the routine evaluation of transfer credits prior to registration; (5) designate counselors and advisors to work with transfers; (6) review financial aid policies to facilitate aid to transfers; (7) heighten the awareness of needs and contributions of transfer students; (8) an in-house study should be made to determine the man-hours required to evaluate transfer transcripts; and (9) maintain communications with counselors in two-year institutions to develop a better awareness of opportunities for transfer students at MSU. Appendices of related material are included. (MJM)
