Title:Special report on the transfer admission process: National Association for College Admission Counseling
Organization: National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC)
Short Description: In the Fall of 2006, NACAC included a supplement on its annual Admission Trends survey to learn more about how colleges evaluate candidates in the transfer admission process, as well as acceptance and yield rates for transfer applicants. These survey data, which were collected in partnership with a dissertation project at Michigan State University, provide a baseline snap-shot of the transfer admission process. These baseline data will inform NACAC’s future research to monitor trends in transfer admission.
Annotation:Each Spring, much media attention is focused on the college admission process for ?rst-year students, with particular emphasis on acceptance rates and factors that colleges consider when choosing among applicants. However, less attention is focused on the transfer admission process, which affects approximately one-third of students beginning at either a four- or two-year institution during the course of their postsecondary careers. In the Fall of 2006, NACAC included a supplement on its annual Admission Trends survey to learn more about how colleges evaluate candidates in the transfer admission process, as well as acceptance and yield rates for transfer applicants. These survey data, which were collected in partnership with a dissertation project at Michigan State University, provide a baseline snap-shot of the transfer admission process. These baseline data will inform NACAC’s future research to monitor trends in transfer admission.
