Trends in Transfer Students at Maryland Public Higher Education Institutions, 1993 to 2002.
Maine Department of Education
This report summarizes the trends in transfer students at Maryland public higher education institutions during the past 10 years, 1993-2002. Specifically, the figures include the number of students enrolled at a community college in the fall of each year who transferred to a public four-year institution by the fall of the following year; the report looks at the number of new transfer students each year rather than the cumulative number of transfers. Transfer trends are examined statewide, by campus, and by program. The report also analyzes so-called "reverse-transfers"--students who return to a community college after having attended a four-year institution. The first section of this report looks at the trends in the number of community college students who transfer to a Maryland four-year institution statewide by race and by full- and part-time status. The second section looks at community college transfers by campus, the number of community college transfer students who had been enrolled in a transfer program course of study at a two-year institution, and the number of these who transferred to a public four-year institution and entered the same program of study. The third section examines reverse transfers.
