Through the Gate Transfer Study

Timeline: 2016-Current

Research initiative identifying ways to increase transfer for a “high-leverage” group of community college students: those who are close to transfer but have not yet made it to university.


Check out Students Speak Their Truth about Transfer: What They Need to Get Through the Gate — a report summarizing what we learned from over 800 students about why they struggle to transfer and what community colleges and universities can do to help them reach their goal: a bachelor’s degree.
