Tracking Transfer

February 05, 2024

Nearly 80 percent of community college students want to transfer and earn a bachelor's degree—yet just 16 percent do so after six years. This is a modest increase from 14 percent in 2016, the year of the first Tracking Transfer report.

The Aspen Institute recently released the 2024 edition of Tracking Transfer. This edition features two reports, one highlighting community colleges. The other highlights four-year institutions. Each report offers a state-by-state breakdown of transfer outcomes, recommendations to improve transfer practices and bachelor’s degree attainment rates. provide detailed data on how states serve low-income, Black, Hispanic and older students. They highlight steps colleges, community leaders and policymakers can take to improve completion rates and help students effectively reach their goals.
