Get Ahead of the Transfer Curve
Fortin, Shelley J.
College and University, v91 n2 p53-56 Jul 2016
With more and more students making community college the starting point of their postsecondary education, there is potential in the pipeline; tapping into it promises great rewards. Transfer has long been integral to the community college mission, but navigating the path to the four-year degree continues to be a challenge. Transfer students have found success at all types of institutions, including the most elite universities. It is clear that good preparation can and does take place in the community college setting, but given the current structure, too many students fail to make the transition to a four-year institution. Economics, demographics, and national priorities demand a stronger connection between community college transfer programs and four-year institutions.
