Achieving the Dream
Using data from Achieving the Dream: Community College Count, this issue of Data Notes examines the reported transfer rates of Achieving the Dream colleges and the enrollment patterns of students who transfer to another institution either before or after receiving degrees from the community colleges. Nineteen percent of students in the 2002 cohort transferred during the five-year data collection period. Comparable percentages of students were reported as transfers for each academic year--ranging between three and five percent. The relatively large share of community college students that transfer indicates the importance of understanding the enrollment patterns of transfer students, and of including transfers in institutional measures of student success. (Contains 4 figures and 4 footnotes.)
