For many, transferring is too difficult.
We're on a mission to change the status quo.


We offer professional development for practitioners, faculty, and administrators at two- and four-year institutions.


We bring together a wide range of stakeholders to explore the pressing issues and obstacles related to the transfer student experience.


Our goal is to increase access to and attainment of postsecondary credentials by promoting seamless transfer pathways.


Building Transfer Student Pathways
For College and Career Success

Ensuring college completion and success requires an understanding of the evolving nature of transfer transitions and a system-wide approach that reaches beyond two-year and four-year institutions to include high schools participating in dual enrollment programs and military college initiatives.


The National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience & Students in Transition and the National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students are pleased to announce a new edited collection designed to respond to these challenges. Building Transfer Student Pathways for College and Career Success offers insight into institutional and statewide partnerships that create clearly defined pathways to college graduation and career success for all students.
