Transfer101 was created by The University of Texas System in partnership with The Texas A&M University System and the Texas Association of Community Colleges.
More than 50 percent of students begin their higher education journey at a community college. However, available data shows that students are not realizing the full potential of these educational pathways. Texas is losing an intellectual talent pool, communities are losing economic development opportunities, and families are not moving from poverty to the middle class.
The UT System and its partners seek to increase the number of students transferring from community colleges to four-year institutions. These students are proven to have the capability and motivation needed to succeed as statistics show that students who transfer from a community college to a university are graduating at higher rates than first-time, full-time freshman.
One critical way Transfer101 will facilitate success is by ensuring students have easy access to the information and tools they need to make the transition to a senior institution.
