STUDENT TRANSFER DESTINATIONS BY STATE

This site presents data from the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center (NSCRC) on the number of students at public institutions who transferred in the United States and its territories both in-state and out-of-state for the 2006, 2008, and 2010 cohorts. Each cohort of students is made up of first-time students of any age who began their postsecondary studies in one of these years. Cohorts include both full-time and part-time students, and exclude students who received any degree or certificate from a two- or four-year institution prior to 2006, 2008 and 2010 respectively. By design, the data is intended to provide a snapshot of student transfer patterns in the US and its outlying territories. Note that it tracks the first-time transfer only and thus does not reflect the total number of transfers by cohort, given that 45 percent of these students will transfer more than once. For more information on NSCRC methodology, cohort identification, transfer outcome, and small cell suppression click here. If you have questions, check out the FAQs here.
