Excerpt from the NSC Research Center website:

"Recognizing the urgency of COVID-19’s impact on students and institutions, the Research Center disseminates rapid response information and context for the education community and individual learners seeking to understand how the pandemic is changing transfer pathways across higher education through summer 2022. The transfer pathways considered are defined broadly to include upward, lateral, and reverse transfer... As the eighth in the series, this report provides up-to-date information about the undergraduate transfer enrollment and pathways for the spring of 2022, in comparison with the patterns in the previous years. It analyzes 11.2 million undergraduate students, including 630,000 transfer students, as reported by 89.4 percent of colleges as of March 24, 2022."
