Virtual Forum - On Demand
Transforming Transfer Policies
Many students enter community college with the goal of eventually attaining a four-year degree, but the process doesn’t always go as smoothly as hoped. Often, credits earned in two-year institutions are nontransferable, or financial aid simply runs out. How can colleges rethink their policies to better help these students achieve their dreams?
We’ll examine how two- and four-year colleges can put community-college students on the path to a bachelor’s degree in the Virtual Forum, “Transforming Transfer Policies.”
Join us on Thursday, August 17 at 2 p.m. ET, as a panel of experts shares their thoughts on how institutions can better support student success:
- What policies, such as transcript holds, can be modified to encourage students to continue their studies in the face of financial hardship?
- How can two- and four-year institutions collaborate to ensure more credits transfer?
- What lessons have our panelists learned from their own experience?
