Transfer, mobility & progress
From NSC Research Center: “Only highly selective institutions expanded their total transfer enrollment throughout the entire year, thanks to an unusually large one-year growth in upward transfer (10.3%) across all student groups, irrespective of gender, race, and ethnicity, or transferring within states or into different states. … Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) had substantial transfer student losses this year (-70,400 students, -11.8%), while Historically Black Colleges and Universities remained largely unaffected. Both saw post-transfer persistence rates falling due to the pandemic, except that HSIs made a small gain in the latter part of the year. Following national patterns, declines in mobility at these institutions were largely driven by men.”
