Reverse Transfer: A National View of Student Mobility 
from Four-Year to Two-Year Institutions

The National Student Clearinghouse Research Center has published the third report in a series of Signature Reports that examines enrollment pathways of reverse transfer students, those who moved from four-year to two-year institutions outside of summer months. Among the findings:

– Within six years, 14.4 percent of the first-time students who started at a four-year institution in the fall of 2005 subsequently enrolled at a two-year institution outside of summer months.

– More than half of reverse transfer students did not return to the four-year sector by the end of the study period.

– The majority of reverse transfer students (71.1 percent) stayed at a two-year institution for more than one term.

– By the end of the six-year study period, two-thirds of reverse transfer students neither had a credential from nor were still enrolled at a four-year institution.

– Only one in 10 of the students who left their original four-year institution to enroll at a two-year institution in nonsummer months completed a degree or were still enrolled at the original four-year institution by the end of the six-year study period.
