Reverse Transfer: What Is the Best Route to Take? ECS Promising Practices in Education
Anderson, Lexi
Education Commission of the States
As states have begun to fully implement reverse transfer policies, their reported student-level outcomes data varies widely. Given the infancy of most reverse transfer policy, it is premature to pinpoint any single state action that has served to accelerate or hinder successful degree conferrals. However, taking a deeper look at exemplar state practices can provide guidance for states looking to implement reverse transfer policies in the future. The third in a series on reverse transfer policy, this brief presents early outcomes data for the 10 states that have implemented statewide reverse transfer policies and offers recommendations informed by prior state actions for states that have yet to enact or implement a statewide reverse transfer policy. The first brief, "Reverse Transfer: The path less traveled", defines reverse transfer and explores how states might utilize the policy as an approach to support increasing educational attainment. The second brief, "Reverse Transfer: Paving the pathway", focuses on the distinct approaches states are taking to implement reverse transfer policies. [For the first brief, "Reverse Transfer: The Path Less Traveled. ECS Education Trends," see ED556470; and for the second brief, "Reverse Transfer: Paving the Pathway. ECS Education Policy Analysis," see ED558966.]
