Clemetsen, Bruce; Balzer, Jackie
College and University, v83 n3 p12-19 2008
A review of the literature on student transfer supports the concept of developing the Degree Partnership path between community colleges and universities. In this article, the authors summarize the literature's findings regarding barriers to successful student transfer. A brief description of "key program elements" will convey how the partnership enhanced systems in order to reduce the impact of barriers described in the literature. Finally, they share descriptive statistics relating to the program's successful implementation as well as the results of a qualitative study of the program's meaning for a diverse set of students.
