Playbook for Transfer

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.
