Title:Sealing the gaps: Supporting low-income, first-generation students at four-year institutions in Texas post-transfer
Organization:Pell Institute
Short Description:This study tracked completion rates of community college transfer students — most of whom are low-income, nontraditional-aged and attending part-time — in comparison with equivalent “native” students who initially enrolled at four-year institutions, utilizing data from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. In addition to transfer-specific support practices, the study identified two distinct transfer support philosophies, both across and within the institutions.
Annotation:This study tracked completion rates of community college transfer students — most of whom are low-income, nontraditional-aged and attending part-time — in comparison with equivalent “native” students who initially enrolled at four-year institutions, utilizing data from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. In addition to transfer-specific support practices, the study identified two distinct transfer support philosophies, both across and within the institutions. Case studies at five of the top transfer-receiving universities in Texas provided further insight into the challenges typically faced by transfer students, and support mechanisms designed to enhance transfer degree completion rates.
