In-state and interstate initiatives aim to improve transfer pathways - Tara García Mathewson, Education Dive

While the vast majority of community college students enroll with plans to transfer and earn a bachelor’s degree, only one in 10 actually do so within six years. Fixing the leaky transfer pipeline has become a major concern of state higher education systems, the federal government and a number of foundations in recent years. California is one state that has enshrined expectations for transfer in state law, creating a framework to ease the transition from the state’s community colleges to its four-year schools in the California State University system. In 2010, legislators approved transfer reform legislation that created the Associate Degree for Transfer, which comes with guaranteed admission to a CSU school with junior standing.
