With an ever-increasing number of college-aspiring students coming from families facing financial need, many are opting to start their higher education journey at a community college. This report, for the first time, disaggregates the transfer student population to examine the patterns and outcomes of students transferring from two-year colleges versus those transferring between four-year institutions. Notably, at the 100 most selective colleges, 14 percent of students transfer in, but only 5 percent have transferred from a community college.
