Transfer success

Did you know that earning an associate degree before transferring makes you more likely to complete your bachelor’s degree?

More than 40% of students plan to start at Delta and transfer to a university. Not only does it save money, but it's a great plan for success. Research from the Signature Report (PDF) by the National Student Clearinghouse shows rates of completing a 4-year degree are higher for students who transferred with a two-year degree (72%) than for those who transferred without a credential (56%).

"The report shows that most students who transfer do earn a bachelor's degree and the data suggest that students who complete a degree at the community college are more likely to earn a bachelor's degree than the thousands of students who transfer before completing their community college degree," according to Thomas Bailey, George and Abby O'Neill Professor of Economics of Education and the Director of the Community College Research Center, Teachers College, Columbia University.
