When Students Transfer, Credits May Not Follow

About a third of first-time, first-year undergraduates will enroll in at least one other college over the next six years, and nearly four out of 10 will do so without transferring any credits if trends seen in a new study by the National Center for Education Statistics hold true.

According to a report being released today, “Transferability of Postsecondary Credit Following Student Transfer or Coenrollment,” the study found that well over half of student transfers start out in public, two-year colleges, and that students who transfer from those colleges to four-year public institutions bring the most credits with them.
