​The authors of this report analyzed data from the National Student Clearinghouse for over 700,000 degree-seeking students who started at a community college. They defined common metrics for transfer student success including: transfer-out rate, transfer-with-award rate, and transfer-out bachelor’s completion rate. The report breaks out these outcomes by state, in comparison with the national rates.
