Nov 17, 2022

Benzinga By Pr Newswire A new study fromUPCEA and StraighterLine examines barriers and motivations for transfer students with implications for institutions, finds 30% of students lose at least a quarter of existing academic credit WASHINGTON, Nov. 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- UPCEA (University Professional and Continuing Education Association), the largest association of adult and continuing education units at colleges and universities, and StraighterLine released the findings from a new survey today examining students' lived experiences and perceptions around transferring college credits. As universities and colleges struggle with declining enrollment, many are looking at ways to reach the more than 39 million Americans with some college credit but no degree. The survey of nearly 1,000 adults found learners who transfer want an easier process, better communication and a clearer path to completing their degree. AD AD With a declining share of first-time students entering higher education directly out of high school, colleges face a new strategic imperative to compete for and retain adult learners and transfer students with existing college credit, said Dr. Amy Smith, chief learning officer at StraighterLine. This research provides timely and relevant insights into the complex needs, barriers and aspirations of modern learners at a time when institutions are looking for ways to smooth the pathway to degree and credential attainment.
