NACADA Webinar: Build Your Advising Toolkit to Support Transfer Students

Thu Dec 16, 2:00 - 3:30 PM (EST)
Close Hipp 304  

According to a 2018 report from the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center, 38 percent of students transferred within the first six years of higher education and almost two in five enrolled in more than one institution before earning a bachelor's degree. The complexity of this student enrollment compels advisors to better understand the experiences of the transfer students who will likely be part of their advising caseload. In this NACADA Advising Community on Transfer Students sponsored webinar, current AC Chair Jennifer Brown and Past AC Chair Karen Archambault will provide a "Transfer 101" orientation for advisors, focusing on the experience of transfer students beyond credits alone and including the logistical needs of transfer students, the academic experience, and the psycho-social strengths and challenges that these students experience.

C4: Academic advising approaches and strategies specific to transfer students

I3: How policies, procedures, rules, and regulations regarding transfer students may support or impede their success

I5: The characteristics, needs, and experiences of transfer students
