An Investigation of Degree Pathways for Students of Color with Transfer Credits
written by Camila Monsalve, Rachel Henderson, and Vashti Sawtelle
Nationally, about 80% of two-year college (TYC) students intend to obtain a bachelor's degree; however, only 13% successfully do so. Recently, Governor Gretchen Whitmer joined the Complete College America movement to increase the completion rates of TYC students in the state of Michigan. Here, we use institutional data from Michigan State University (MSU) to explore TYC transfer students pathways through an undergraduate STEM program. We define TYC transfer students as one who transferred at least one credit from any TYC to MSU; 30% of students sitting in a STEM class are TYC transfer students at MSU. In this paper, we describe the assorted degree pathways that TYC transfer students take to complete a bachelor's degree in STEM programs. We will also investigate how these pathways change for different race/ethnicity markers
