Removing Transfer Student Roadblocks

Are we simply making it too hard for students to transfer into our institutions?

Reported by Education Dive, the reason many students may stop after their 2-year degree is simply the friction point of moving forward.

Partnerships like the one between University of Dayton and Sinclair Community College are attempting to solve for this. Today, before students enroll at Sinclair, they know exactly what their four-year financial aid and tuition lock will be if they continue on their four-year path. University of Dayton also opens up their facilities and resources to students during their entire time at Sinclair, and have built out 60 different academic pathways to ensure students don’t waste any earned credits upon transfer.

The takeaway? How do we continue to clear the roadblocks in the way of student progression and persistence that are keeping students who really want to move forward from doing so?

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