Sucessful Student Transfer: A Key Building Block of the Completion Agenda


This paper is primarily a result of a two-stage convening, “Transfer Solutions through Cross Organizational Alignment,” hosted by the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) during spring and summer 2014 and sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Higher education leaders from a broad spectrum of postsecondary institutions and organizations gathered to share information and perspectives around some of the complex issues associated with transfer.

The paper also draws upon several recent reports to expand upon those discussions. Specifically, it concentrates on providing a high-level overview of today’s transfer marketplace, including its general characteristics and impact on degree completion.
