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 instate and outofstate for the 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2012 cohorts. Each cohort of students is made up of firsttime students of any age who began their postsecondary studies in one of these years. Cohorts include both fulltime and parttime students, and exclude students who received any degree or certificate from a two or fouryear institution prior to 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2012 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 firsttime 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.
Note the results presented on this site are based on guidelines set by NSCRC research practices and data has been suppressed for the following:
* Fewer than 3 institutions by entry state and sector
** Fewer than 10 students by state, sector, and year
*** Complimentary suppression
^The number for Total Public may be greater than the sum of the cells across the table because it is not subject to suppression.
