Postbaccalaureate reverse transfer students (PRTSs) are students that enroll at a community college after completion of at least a bachelor's degree. This study expanded the definition of PRTSs by including students that had completed an associate's degree prior to enrolling at a community college. This report is an exploratory, descriptive study of PRTSs in Iowa for fiscal years 2010 through 2014. The purpose of this study is to contribute to the knowledge of post-PRTSs in Iowa. The study referenced data from the State of Iowa Management Information Systems database and National Student Clearinghouse to examine the demographics, previous degrees, program of enrollment, and prevalence of PRTSs enrolled at community colleges in Iowa. A summary discussion of the results along with implications and recommendations for the practice, policy and further research are included.
