Transferability of Postsecondary Credit Following Student Transfer or Coenrollment: Statistical Report

The purpose of this report is to examine how often, and under what conditions, postsecondary institutions accept the transfer of credits earned by students at other institutions. It addresses the following questions:
• How often do members of a cohort of beginning college students transfer or coenroll1 between postsecondary education institutions during their undergraduate years?
• How often, and in what amounts, do credits transfer when students move from one institution to another?
• What characteristics of institutions (i.e., control, level, accreditation, and selectivity) and students (i.e., grade point average [GPA] and degree/award level of program) are related to credit transfer?
