Abstract or Summary
  • As reverse transfer students become a larger part of community college enrollments, it is important to better understand the underlying causes of this nontraditional population’s emergence in the traditional community college system. This quantitative descriptive study found that approximately nine percent of the student body enrolled at Rogue Community College (RCC) between September, 2012 and September, 2013 gained an average of 55 credits (for reverse transfer non-completers) at a four-year college prior to reverse transferring to RCC. At the time of their enrollment at RCC, these students were an average age of 32 years and made up of 68% females and 32% males. A little more than half, 51% of the students, indicated their primary motivation for enrolling at RCC was to gain an associate’s degree and 27% of students indicated a longer-term goal of pursuing a career in nursing. Community college administrators should be aware of reverse transfers as an indication that the traditional forms of higher education are not serving some students. These results can be attributed in part due to the dynamic changes in the economy after the economic downturn of 2008 and the consequences that impacted the labor market.
