This research study was conducted to find out more about the factors that affect the integration of, specifically, community college transfer students at a large, urban four-year college. Three focus groups were conducted to gain insight into transfer student experiences and to determine what factors influence their integration at the college. The information and experiences they shared led to the development of the following main themes: negotiation, connecting, and student initiative. In addition, the students in the study offered advice on what services could be provided to better integrate them into the college.
I have worked in the Office of Admissions at Metro State College of Denver since 1998, focusing on transfer students for the most of this time. I began my career as an Admissions Counselor and have also held the positions of Asst and Asscoiate Director of Admissions. Currently, I am the Interim Director of Admissions and Outreach.
