Share success stories during the inaugural National Transfer Student Week, which runs through Friday.
The celebration is organized by the National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students, with support from the New England Transfer Association and the New York State Transfer and Articulation Association.
NACAC research shows that colleges understand the importance of serving transfer students. According to data included in the association’s most recent State of College Admission report:
- Nine in 10 colleges regard transfer students as considerably or moderately important to overall enrollment goals.
- 90 percent of public colleges and 70 percent of private colleges participate in articulation agreements with community colleges.
- 81 percent of colleges have at least one admission officer who works exclusively with prospective transfer students.
