The University of Central Florida, a metropolitan university with approximately 45,000 students, is the seventh largest university in the US. Nearly 80% of the 6,000 transfer students who enroll each year transfer from six regional community colleges. The Transfer and Transition Services office has built strong networks for transfer student success, involving collaboration across academic departments and across institutions. This presentation explores the university’s successful efforts to establish successful partnerships to ensure that transfer students are academically prepared, have a smooth transition, and make progress toward graduation.

The presentation will review factors that impact the retention and graduation rates of UCF students who transfer from the regional community colleges, and will show that the extensive programming and outreach at the preparation stage positively affect retention and graduation rates of transfer students. Programs like GradTrack at Valencia Community College, Co-Advisement at Seminole Community College, and presentations to student success classes at all six community colleges promote academic preparation, the foundation for successful transfer, retention, and progress to graduation. A key factor for TTS in creating effective programming and improving retention rates lies in the strong network of collaborative relationships with the community colleges and within the university.
