Reverse Transfer & Institutional Research
  • Nationally, half of the students who earn a bachelor’s degree after transferring to a four-year institution from a community college fail to receive an associate’s degree (College Board).
  • The reverse transfer agreement provides an opportunity for transfer students to receive an associate degree when the necessary requirements are met so as to more fully represent their academic success. 
  • As a result of these agreements, there are opportunities to refine IR data and reporting to capture the impact of these agreements on student success.
rt ir presentational preview
RT & IR: Presentational Preview
  • A brief overview of the current Reverse Transfer landscape in Michigan.
  • Implications for Institutional Research data offerings.
    • Current Ferris State University Transfer Student Report to Michigan CC’s.
    • 2025 Committee Proposed Graduation and Retention Measures.
    • Enhancements to capture the impact of Reverse Transfer Agreements on Student Success.
rt ir overview of reverse transfer
RT & IR: Overview of Reverse Transfer
  • Expanded number of agreements nationally and in Michigan over the past two years. Inour case with a little help from the State.
  • Current Ferris State Agreements
  • Trending toward full participation with all public 4-year institutions and community colleges.
  • Grant Application Status
advantages for students institutions
Advantages for Students & Institutions
  • For Students
    • The associate is a valuable credential in the job market, both for job hunting and for career advancement.
    • Imbues students with a sense of accomplishment by earning a credential and may assist in completing their Bachelor’s Degrees.
    • Students who do not complete their Bachelor’s Degree will have a valuable credential.
  • For Institutions
    • A student who transfers from a community college to a 4-year institution and completes a bachelor's degree is not included in the widely reported IPEDS graduationrate.
    • This graduation rate from NCES/IPEDS counts only first-time, full-time students who finish a degree at the institution at which they began.
current transfer data reporting
Current Transfer Data/Reporting
  • For the past 6 years Ferris reports annually to all Michigan CC’s on the number and success of their Transfer Students.
    • See Example.
  • Alternative Student Success techniques proposed by the Talent 2025 group.
    • See Example.
proposed 2025 data
Proposed 2025 Data
  • Include all newly entering degree seeking students (regardless of previous education)
  • Recognizes any type or level of degree earned.
  • Report Graduation Rate in four different groups:
    • FTIACs – Full-time
    • FTIACs – Part-time
    • Transfer students – Full-time
    • Transfer students – Part-time
proposed 2025 data1
Proposed 2025 Data
  • For each of the four different groups, report number and percent who:
    • Graduated From Institution
    • Graduated From Another 4YR
    • Graduated From Another 2YR
    • Still Enrolled at Institution
    • Still Enrolled at Another 4YR
    • Still Enrolled at Another 2YR

Sample Summary Page – Full Report Contains Additional Metrics

additional data elements
Additional Data Elements
  • Information on Response to RT Availability
    • #/ % of transfer from the CC that were eligible for RT
    • #/ % of those eligible for RT that were awarded an Associate’s Degree
    • # and type of credits transferred back to CC for Degree Completion
    • # who left their CC without earning an Associate’s Degree who needed no additional credits to complete
    • #/% increase in completions for Community Colleges
      • Within 150% of time for reporting to IPEDS
      • Outside that window but beneficial for overall metrics and state considerations
  • Information on Subsequent Degree Completion
    • #/ % of those earning an Associate’s Degree via RT who complete a Bachelor’s Degree compared to those without an Associate’s Degree and those that earned their Associate’s prior to transferring to a 4-yerar institution.
    • #/ % who completed their Bachelor’s Degree within 150% of the time split by the same 3 comparison groups from the previous measure.
