Celebrate National Transfer Student Week

Who are America’s transfer students and how does your institution play a role in their journey to a degree?

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.

View NACAC’s transfer webpage, check out the association’s new “Transfer Tips” video series, and share information about NACAC’s application fee waiver for transfer students.

  1. During the inaugural National Transfer Student Week, CollegeSource has been hosting daily contests for transfer professionals (on our Facebook page) and transfer students (on our transfer product Transferology’s Twitter page). It has been great getting people to participate! In the process, we’re gathering helpful advice from transfer professionals that we’ll relay to students who may benefit from it. The week-long celebration has also allowed us to make new connections with institutions and organizations that also strive to empower transfer.
