In February we told you about the Community College Research Center (CCRC) and the Aspen Institute’s plan to develop and release a “playbook” to help two- and four-year institutions design and implement effective transfer polices. Recently released, The Transfer Playbook is available as a free PDF and discusses practices, strategies, and activities to improve transfer student outcomes. The Playbook identifies pitfalls in the transfer process and offers three approaches for evading them and streamlining the path for students and counselors alike. This includes examining program pathways, orientation, advising, and financial aid as essentials components.
