This report helps its readers to answer questions such as: how likely are students to transfer? Which students are most likely to do so? Measure and benchmark transfer rates from student backgrounds defined by income, race, ethnicity, college major, regional origin, job status, ACT/SAT scores, college grades, and other variables.  Quantify exactly how many have already transferred from other colleges. How many plan to transfer and how strong is this sentiment? The report enables its end users to pin down and benchmark transfer sentiments and rates broken out by innumerable useful variables.

In addition the report presents a range of data on student satisfaction with their current college, the likelihood that survey respondents will recommend their college to a friend, and how they now view the value of their eventual degree vs. how they viewed it when they started at their present college.

Data in the report is based on an exhaustive survey of 1,065 full time college students from a representative sample of 4-year colleges in the United States.

Just a few of the report’s many findings are that:

  • 18.22% of all students interviewed had previously transferred out of another college prior to graduation.
  • Students who were raised abroad in the US South were much more likely than students raised elsewhere to contemplate transferring to another college.
  • The more religious a student, the more likely that they were to recommend their current college to a friend.
