Transfer students—whose challenges have often been ignored in higher education—are feeling a surge in popularity as colleges and universities are increasingly wooing them.
For example, more and more universities now have articulation agreements with community colleges that explain and align credits needed for a specific academic program or degree. They also are offering "success coaches" and advisers who concentrate largely on easing the way for transfer students and creating clearer and more transparent information online. And some institutions are providing full-tuition scholarships for transfer students, something not available in the past.
