Abstract

This study investigates the contribution of community college transfers to the socioeconomic diversity of elite colleges and universities. We find that elite institutions enroll few transfers and, among them, few are low-income students from community colleges. Transfer primarily serves middle- and high-income students as a route to elite institutions.
