Reverse Transfer Students and Postsecondary Outcomes: A Potential Opportunity. Policy Research: IERC 2011-5
Lichtenberger, Eric J.

Reverse transferring, or moving from a four-year institution to a community college, has been depicted in recent research as one of the major forms of student mobility. Since reverse transferring is associated with extremely low rates of degree completion, it is critical to better understand the predictors of reverse transferring and what happens to reverse transfer students once they move to a community college. This knowledge could help policymakers as they develop strategies to meet the state's goal to increase the proportion of individuals with quality postsecondary degrees and credentials to 60% by 2025. Description of variables is appended. (Contains 7 tables and 13 figures.)
