Student Mobility 2006. ACAATO Archive Document
Colleges Ontario
This paper presents data on Ontario's student mobility for 2006. This report found that the desire to obtain both a college and university credential in Ontario's postsecondary system is considerable. At least one quarter of college students have serious intentions of attaining a degree after a diploma. Currently, over 7% of Ontario's college students have a university degree ([similar to] 6000 students annually) and almost 9% of college graduates go on to a university within six months of graduating (greater than 5000 students annually). Most college graduates who go on to a university attend one close to their college of graduation. Younger college graduates and graduates of one and two year programs are more likely to continue directly on to further education. Although the proportion of college graduates going on to a university is increasing, the amount of transfer credit obtained is unknown. [For 2005 report, see ED536636.]
