Title: Academic Advising of Transfer Students: A Student, Faculty, and Staff Perspective
Lead Presenter: Christina Wills
Date: October 07, 2020    Time: 11:00 am - 11:45 am
Room: Poster
Abstract: Our University has sought to increase transfer student admittance by increasing recruitment efforts and approving associate degree block transfer programs. In response to increased recruitment, I have developed surveys to examine the academic advising experience of transfer students. These surveys sought to systematically gather data from a student, faculty advisor, professional staff advisor, and transfer admissions counselor perspective on academic advising of transfer students. In Spring 2020, an online survey was sent to these groups. Overall, advisors, students, and admissions staff expressed confidence in the advising process with two exceptions. All three groups stated that the course transferability between universities is not clear. Students and advisors also stated that they found the online degree evaluation system to be confusing.
