Advisors' Attitudes Regarding Transfer Students.
Mahon, Patricia G.; Dannells, Michael
NACADA Journal, v18 n2 p33-39 Fall 1998
A survey of 278 academic advisors from six four-year colleges and universities determined differences in advisors' attitudes toward students matriculating at their institutions, transfer community-college students, and students coming from other four-year colleges. Advisors viewed transfer students as less prepared, less motivated, less knowledgeable about requirements and procedures, and less able to adjust to an upper-division academic environment.
