Concurrent Admission Partnerships to Prevent Transfer Credit Loss

Did you know that transferring to a new institution can lose students half the credits they’ve already earned?

Reported by EAB, a study by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) showed that between 2004-2009, students who transferred institutions lost 43% on average of the credits they had earned at prior institutions.

Many states are looking to help solve for this, including Oklahoma’s Tulsa Transfer Project, a concurrent admission partnership between Tulsa Community College and five nearby Oklahoma universities.

The takeaway? How do we make our institutions better options for transfer students by making sure these students can keep every credit they worked so hard to earn?

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