Growning Number of “Reverse Transfers” From Universities To Community Colleges

Forks in the Road
Roughly 14% of first-time students who enrolled at a four-year institution in the fall of 2005 had transferred from a community college by 2011, according to a new study that sheds light on “reverse transfers.” Of the transfer group, about 17% eventually returned to their original four-year institution, while 28% went on to a different four-year. The other 55% either stuck it out at community colleges or dropped out.
