New report, "Transfer and Mobility: A National View of Pre-Degree Student Movement in Postsecondary Institutions," examines students' increasingly complex transfer patterns. Key finding: A third of students transfer before graduating, and many head toward community colleges. Students' transfer patterns reflect the important role of community colleges. Among students who transfer from four-year public institutions, more than half (51.9%) transfer "in reverse," to two-year public institutions. And among students who transfer from two-year public colleges, more than a third (37.6%) move laterally, to other two-year public colleges. That is nearly as many as transfer from two-year to four-year public institutions: 41.2%.
