The Case for Increasing Community College Transfer to High Graduation Rate Institutions

The Talent Blind Spot: The Case for Increasing Community College Transfer to High Graduation Rate Institutions was published by the Aspen Institute’s College Excellence Program for the American Talent Initiative (ATI). The report demonstrates that, each year, more than 50,000 high-achieving, low- and moderate-income community college students do not transfer to a four-year institution. Approximately 15,000 of these students have a 3.7 GPA or higher, which suggests they could succeed at even the most competitive schools. It also demonstrates that high-graduation-rate colleges and universities—the American Talent Initiative schools—enroll far fewer transfer students than other four-year institutions. The report offers a path forward based on the work of several ATI member institutions that have demonstrated that creating robust community college transfer success is possible through strong, leadership-drive partnerships, early outreach and advising, and dedicated, holistic supports.
