While nearly six million community college students intend to transfer, only a quarter follow through, meaning that four-year institutions are missing out on four million potential transfer students that fall out of the transfer pipeline. Our study, Paving the Path to Transfer, details eight practices for increasing transfer enrollment by reducing barriers to students.
Transfer students often face lukewarm reception on four-year campuses. They struggle to get answers to basic enrollment questions and are last in line for course registration. Enrollment managers can increase campus enthusiasm for serving transfer students by educating stakeholders on four key contributions transfer students make to four-year campuses:
1. Differentiated undergraduate enrollments
2. Bolstered tuition revenues
3. Increased campus diversity
4. Supported student success
