Build Your Advising Toolkit to Support Transfer Students
61 min - December 10, 2021 (Season 16)
Panelists: Karen Archambault (Rowan College at Burlington County) and Jennifer Brown (Windward Community College)
According to data from the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center (2018), 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 60-minute, 2021 NACADA Advising Community on Transfer Students sponsored webinar, current AC Chair Jennifer Brown and Past AC Chair Karen Archambault 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.
