Over the past 20 years, more than 31 million students have enrolled in college and left without receiving a degree or certificate. Almost one-third of this population had only a minimal interaction with the higher education system, having enrolled for just a single term at a single institution. Signature Report 7 examines the “some college, no degree” phenomenon to better understand the value of some college in its own right and as well as the contribution the “some college, no degree” population can make to achieving college completion goals.

Community colleges play an increasingly important role for students on the way to a baccalaureate degree, and this pathway is very successful for those who transfer. More than 60 percent of students who transferred from two‐year schools in the 2005-2006 academic year obtained degrees at four‐year institutions. Another eight percent remained in college and were still working on a four‐year degree six years after transfer. These are the findings of the National Student Clearinghouse™ Research Center® in their latest Signature Report, “ Baccalaureate Attainment: A National View of the Postsecondary Outcomes of Students Who Transfer from Two‐Year to Four‐Year Institutions.”

The report is based on student ‐ level data made available to the Clearinghouse by its more than 3,500 participating colleges and universities, including 98 percent of students attending public and private nonprofit postsecondary institutions.

In our second Signature Report, we analyze students’ transfer behaviors to better understand their postsecondary pathways. A detailed view of transfer rates is critical in helping institutions and policymakers develop strategies and policies that facilitate successful outcomes. Among the study’s findings:

  • One third of all students transferred at least once within five years.
  • The majority of transfers occurred in students’ second year, regardless of the direction of transfer (i.e., vertical, lateral or reverse). Although a surprising number of students made their first transfer in the fourth and fifth years.
  • Part- and full-time students had similar transfer rates over five years.
  • Over one quarter of all transfers crossed state lines, which, among other things, demonstrated the limitations of institution and state-based enrollment reporting.

The complete Signature Report includes detailed transfer summaries and related tables; color charts broken down by institution sector and control, part- and full-time student transfer rates and timing, in- and out-of-state transfers, and insight and future recommendations from the authors.
