Registered participants will have access to view the webinar prior to the conversation.
Event panelists guiding the conversation will be:
According to a 2018 report from the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center, 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 NACADA Advising Community on Transfer Students sponsored webinar, current AC Chair Jennifer Brown and Past AC Chair Karen Archambault will provide a "Transfer 101" orientation for advisors, focusing on the experience of transfer students beyond credits alone and including the logistic needs of transfer students, the academic experience, and the psychosocial strengths and challenges that these students experience.
