Through Friday, the National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students is encouraging educators to recognize and celebrate transfer students and the professionals who support them.
Nationally, more than a third of all students transfer at least once during their college career — and NACAC research shows that colleges recognize the unique needs of 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.
Looking for more ways to celebrate #TransferStudentWeek? Share NACAC’s transfer resources, read the association’s latest research on community colleges and transfer, and pass along information about NACAC’s application fee waiver for transfer students.
