Last year, we launched a CollegeSource Best Practices award that we affectionately call The Sourcies! The Sourcies exist recognize schools and organizations in our user community that are doing remarkable things with CollegeSource products.
For our inaugural awards, South Orange County Community College District (SOCCCD) was recognized for The First Degree Audit in the Cloud and Illinois MyCreditsTransfer was recognized for Superior Statewide Transfer Student Support.
We’re always excited to hear about the successes our customers are having, and honored to be able to spotlight them within our community. A few months following our Annual Conference, lllinois was recognized for their transfer achievements again, this time nationally with an “A+ in College Transfer Report:”
“Illinois has a nearly 12 percentage point advantage over the national college transfer completion rate, and is well above the national average in all areas measured in the [National Student Clearinghouse] study.” — Public News Service
The “11.6 percentage point (27.5 percent) advantage over the national average points to the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI), which is the state’s strong, coordinated system of transfer.” — Illinois Board of Higher Education
We have always been aware of the commitment Illinois MyCreditsTransfer has to serving students, but this data proves beyond all doubt that the IAI and MyCreditsTransfer initiatives, paired with faculty and staff efforts, are impactful and producing measurable results. Illinois has a long history of being heavily invested in statewide transfer systems and we’ve been proud to partner with them. We are humbled that Transferology is the tool they’re relying on to show more than 60,000 students annually how their credits transfer, and look forward to supporting their continued work to improve transfer for students.
