While most Latina/o transfer students declare intentions to transfer from a community college, few move on to four-year colleges and universities. In this paper, the authors provide an overview of the existing information related to transfer objectives and rates. Using the theoretical models of Latina/o Critical Race Theory and Validation Theory, they also highlight key practices that promote transfer. Finally, based on previous scholarship they outline a Latina/o transfer culture and provide recommendations for future research and policy.
