Edvance Study on Access to Independent Colleges

With support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Edvance undertook the largest study of transfer protocol practices of two-year graduates seeking admission to four-year independent colleges and universities.  Over 420 independent colleges and universities participated from among the 1247 institutions solicited, representing a response rate of 34.4%.

The study forms the research foundation which, when added to the lessons learned from the 5-year Bucknell University pilot project and the 18-state listening tour and webinars that solicited opinion from 800 higher ed leaders, will guide implementation of the national scale up of the Nexpectation Network.  This study is is being prepared for national release.
