More than 60% of college students graduate with transfer credits, many entering college with early enrollment credit earned in high school, and tens of thousands transferring credits from two and four-year colleges. It is critical to develop institutional strategies to ease the transfer process and to ensure that students are prepared through appropriate advising. At the same time, pressure on higher education professionals to improve retention rates and ensure that graduates are ready for the labor market has increased. This webinar will highlight a model for student success that focuses on three critical stages of the transfer experience (preparation, transition, progression), presenting specific strategies to enhance advising and recommendations for programming to improve transfer success.

  • Explore significant national trends
  • Identify stages critical to transfer student success
  • Emphasize inter and intra-institutional partnerships to promote collaboration
  • Identify common transition challenges
  • Share creative programming strategies that promote academic success
  • Highlight successful approaches and interventions to improve retention and graduation rates
  • 2-year & 4-year institutions
  • Academic Affairs/Instruction
  • Student Services/Affairs
  • Advising & Counseling
  • Retention Specialist
  • Outreach & Recruitment Staff
  • Any educator interested in improving the transfer experience
