Examining the Transfer Student Landscape: New Perspectives on Recruitment, Enrollment, and Retention
For many years, transfer students were an afterthought at most institutions. Transfer applications – often the first point of contact with these students – would reliably find their way to the admissions office. Today, however, many schools report declining transfer enrollment, lower graduations at feeder schools, and increasing competition for these students.
New Eduventures® research – released in the Annual Eduventures Transfer Student Research™ Report – examines the transfer student landscape and provides insight into the recruitment process from the students’ perspectives. In this webinar, you’ll learn about prospective transfer students’ priorities, college search resources, and concerns.
