Improving Student Transfer from Community Colleges to Four-Year Institutions: The Perspectives of Leaders from Baccalaureate-Granting Institutions
Handel, Stephen J.
College Board
As the nation prepares to meet President Obama's goal of eight million new college graduates by 2020, the transfer process--the pathway between community colleges and four-year institutions--will take on an increasingly vital role. For many four-year colleges and universities, however, this pathway is uncharted territory. To help clear a path, this report highlights the perspective of four-year institution leaders who have had success in recruiting, enrolling and serving transfer students. It is hoped that their insights will assist other four-year college and university leaders who wish to enroll and educate transfer students from community colleges. Appended are: (1) Interview Participants; and (2) Summary and Recommendations. (Contains 26 endnotes.)
