The state of Arizona maintains a database that tracks students who transfer from one of our community colleges to one of our publicly-funded universities. That database includes a huge amount of information about transfer students and from time-to-time, I’ll share something from that database in my blog. For today, the following table lists some general characteristics about our transfer students over the past five years.
