It is a widespread practice among students to attend a community college for the first two years and then transfer to a bachelor’s program for the remaining two years. It is an equitable issue as some individuals are unable to afford the price of a four year university.
As transferring from a community college to a university is a well-established practice, the process is usually straightforward for students. As it is illustrated below, it shows how more than half of students in Kentucky transfer from a community college to complete a bachelor’s degree.
It can also provide students with a broader range of experiences and challenges that can promote personal growth and development. It also increases the likelihood of students securing higher-paying employment opportunities with greater potential for career advancement.
By using the transfer tool that is provided by Kentucky’s Strategy to Connect the Transfer Path, their primary focus will be on meeting the needs of their students. They will enhance institutional collaboration and strive to eliminate barriers to smooth transfers.
