Would Universal Transcripts Improve Graduation Rates?

Is a universal transcript the next step in making graduation more accessible for adult students?

Reported by Education Dive, evaluating the transcripts from various two- and four-year institutions can be difficult, with each institution having its own academic standards. That’s what makes a universal transcript so difficult to make happen, and also what makes it so important for higher ed to figure out.

The takeaway? How do you make your institution’s policies as transfer-friendly as possible so students can use what they’ve already earned and get their degree faster?
