The pathway through higher education is often less like a straight highway than a winding path with stops along the route.A recent report from the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center (NSCRC) on “reverse transfer” provides data on college students who start at a four-year institution and transfer to a community college. That data can give community college leaders a more informed perspective on college completion—as large numbers of students counted as dropouts do actually earn credentials—and, ultimately, develop better completion strategies. The study, supported by Lumina Foundation, examined the prevalence of reverse transfers among first-time-in-college students who entered four-year colleges and universities in fall 2005 and follows their college attendance through summer 2011.
