Transfer Students

According to a recent article in the Community College Daily, community college students who transfer to a four-year college with an associate's degree are more likely to earn a bachelor’s degree than similar students who transfer without one. A new study from the Community College Research Center at Columbia University states that nearly 2/3 of community college students who transfer to bachelor degree granting institutions do so without first earning an associate degree. Furthermore, the authors state that students who transfer with an associate degree were 49% more likely to complete a bachelor’s degree within 4 years and 22% more likely to earn one within 6 years.
