Student transfer is a vital part of the New England higher education landscape, with four in ten students transferring at least once on their path to completing a bachelor’s degree. NEBHE’s Transfer Initiatives support state systems, as well as public and independent higher education institutions, throughout the region by promoting and reporting on effective and seamless transfer policies.

The Transfer Initiatives team is committed to increasing higher education access and opportunity irrespective of a student’s race, socioeconomic status, or zipcode.
