Description: Does your institution have a plan for improving transfer student success? This webinar will begin with some key questions to consider if your institution wants to assess its approach to transfer. The main focus of the presentation will be on the themes and specific recommendations for improving transfer made by two- and four-year institutions that engaged in systematic self-studies of their approach to transfer. The recommendations from 24 two-year institutions focused on improving their institution’s preparation of transfer-bound students. The 9 four-year institutions focused their improvement plans on the experiences they provided for incoming transfer students. Examples of specific recommendations associated with the top 10 recommendation themes will be given.
