pp. 261-291 | 10.1353/rhe.2006.0001


The paper poses the following research question: Does the existence of statewide articulation agreements increase the probability of vertical transfers from two-year to four-year colleges? Stated differently, is there a difference in transfer rates between those states with statewide mandates versus those without such policies? Additionally, this paper culls from postsecondary data on individual characteristics to identify other factors impacting the probability of transferring and to suggest policy considerations that will likely increase student transfers from two-year to four-year institutions.
