Engaging the ‘Some College, No Degree’ Population: Lessons Learned

Presentation

This session will examine the “some college, no degree” (SCND) challenge to higher education. Participate in a discussion of the issues involved and lessons learned—what works and what doesn’t—from the institution, system, and statewide perspectives. The NSC Research Center 2019 report numbers this population at 35.5+ million nationally. This population reflects all student demographics, the most prominent being socio-economic status with students—primarily transfer—from all educational sectors. Learn more about this session.

Advising and Retaining Transfer Students at Community Colleges

Presentation

Providing comprehensive academic advising to students transferring into community college is critical to support their success, retention, and persistence. Yet, this is challenging due to official transcripts not being sent, last minute applications, and transcript evaluation turn-around time. By building a robust transfer equivalency database with College Source’s Transfer Evaluation System (TES), Bunker Hill Community College has developed new practices to provide unofficial transcript evaluations during first advising appointments so students can register for their classes and create academic plans with confidence.

Transfer Practices Panel: Stop, Start, Continue

Panel Discussion

Nothing compares to the experience that comes from working at a college or university and directly with students. CollegeSource is lucky to have a deep bench of people with that first-hand knowledge, who spent most of their careers “in the trenches” as advisors, registrars, and transfer credit evaluators. In this light-hearted session (modeled after the newlywed game!), our in-house experts will be prompted with various transfer topics and asked to share what they would tell their former selves, or institutions today, to Stop/Start/Continue doing. There are sure to be some great recommendations, interesting dialogue, and humorous moments.

From Transferability to Applicability: Expanding Transfer Opportunity through Statewide Field-Aligned Pathways

Presentation

Figuring out how to help community college transfer students’ credits not only be accepted but also applied to their baccalaureate major is a critical yet challenging aim of many practitioners and policymakers. One promising approach is for states and colleges to build on their general transfer programs to create more structured, major-specific transfer pathways which often guarantee entry into the major post-transfer. Panelists will highlight how Ohio has organized statewide field-specific transfer pathways, how they are being used to help students plan for transfer at a community college, and new research on the relationship between taking the right STEM foundational coursework and subsequent STEM transfer success.
