Student Mobility Webinar: Understanding Student Mobility Patterns to Help You Find, and Keep, the Students You Want
Throughout this free webinar, sponsored by AACRAO, Dr. Shapiro provides the latest patterns of student mobility and transfer, as revealed in a recent report from the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center.
Declines in graduation were seen not only in the overall national completion rate, but also every institution type and all student subgroups.
Almost every month the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center releases data impacting higher education through its reports.
Student mobility is an important trend to examine because it plays a significant role in students’ degree completion, an indicator of student success. It can facilitate baccalaureate degree attainment for community college students who transfer to four-year institutions.
The Signature Report 8 State Supplement released in February 2015 continues demonstrating the value of counting student completions that happen at schools different from those where students started.
In its third annual completions report, the National Student Research Center studied students who entered college in fall 2008, the peak of the recession. The report showed that while a larger number of students enrolled during this period, completion rates declined. The largest decrease in completions was among nontraditional age students.
In its seventh Signature Report, Some College, No Degree: A National View of Students with Some College Enrollment, but No Completion, the National Student Clearinghouse® Research Center™ found that 31 million students who enrolled in college during the past 20 years left without receiving a degree or certificate.
In its second annual college completions report, the National Student Clearinghouse® Research Center™ found that more than half, 56.1 percent, of first-time degree-seeking students who enrolled in fall 2007, completed a degree or certificate within six years, including 13.1 percent who completed at an institution other than the starting institution.
