Playbook for Transfer

Inside Higher Ed

Researchers have known for a while now that most community college students want to earn a bachelor's degree, but few go on to do so.
Only 14 percent of students who first enroll at a community college transfer and eventually earn a four-year degree within a six-year period. It's that fact that has led researchers from the Community College Research Center at Columbia University's Teachers College and the Aspen Institute's College Excellence Program to create a detailed guide to helping two- and four-year colleges improve bachelor's degree outcomes for transfer students.

The detailed guide linked in this story features Western Washington University and the University of Washington and the path that students take as they transfer to WWU and UW from Everett Community College.
