Progress, and Finger Pointing, on Student Transfer: A Survey

Given the environment surrounding higher education and the workforce, it seems that this should be the time of transfer.

I transfer from one university to another has been historically difficult than it should be, with disabilities in many points along the way. Incentives for institutions and students to smooth the process at this time are greater than ever, given the current and pending declines in traditional college-age students, the probability that COVID-19 patterns of college attendance Do scrambled students and society. promote racial equity is increasing pressure on universities to diversify their student bodies

A new survey by Inside Higher Ed, however, highlights some of the attitudes and practices that have historically impeded the way for transfer students - - and identifies gaps in perception between managers two years and four year colleges that might be difficult to overcome

among the main findings. "The transfer of landscape: a survey of university officials," consulting managers who are involved with the policies or practices transfer at universities in two or four years:

  • Approximately three quarters of managers two years and four year colleges alike agree that students who transfer from one institution to another works as well or better in the shelter of the students make that began in the institution

    The survey of 143 school administrators held by Hanover Research on behalf of Inside Higher Ed.

    The survey was made possible by support from Huron advertising.

  • Officials from public and private universities four years are much more likely than their peers at community colleges say that the four-year institutions are effective to work with students to pass academic credits they apply to a larger, academic advising them on their options and give them enough academic support.
  • In the same way, university officials two years give themselves higher on preparing students to transfer their counterparts four years of college -. But even officials of the university community not get very high category
  • Two thirds of the administrators of private four-year colleges and 44 percent of those in public universities four-year institutions say it takes less than two weeks to tell students how many transfer their academic credits will be approved. In contrast, 60 percent of university officials community say that brings students transfer to the least two weeks to get approval for credit, and one in five says it needs the least a month.
  • The officials of all the institutions agree overwhelmingly that a "focus centralized assessment works best credit for enrollment of transfer students" that makes leaving those decisions to departments and individual teachers . But university administrators four years are two to three times more likely than their peers two years of college agreed that "experts from the faculty in academic departments individual are effective to decide which and how many credits students can transfer an important program. "

    Together, the results reveal that despite the growing interest in transfer students recruitment (especially among private four-year colleges), university administrators two years and four years often focus more on "point the finger at the other side for not preparing properly or support for transfer students" instead of taking 'collective responsibility for transfer students from beginning community college to university', he says John Fink, an associate researcher at the research Center community College at Teachers College of Columbia University.
