Admissions Officers are Focusing More and More on Transfer Student Strategies

9 out of 10 admission officers consider transfer student recruitment a significant or moderate portion of reaching their overall enrollment growth goals.

Reported by EAB, a new report from the National Association for College Admission Counseling shows an increase in transfer student efforts and strategies, including more transfer-specific admissions hires, a focus on community college partnerships, and an ability to better appeal and communicate to a diverse student base.

The takeaway? With the non-traditional student becoming the majority student across higher education, how do we make sure we have intentional, strategic and rock-solid transfer student strategies in order to hit our growing enrollment goals?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
