          Approximately 33 percent of today’s students transfer — and nearly 27 percent of them cross state lines. And, research shows that as much as 28 percent of transfer students lose between 10 percent and 89 percent of their credits when they transfer*. The Passport Streamlines the transfer process to keep students on the pathway to completion. (*Attewell and Monahan (2014), “The Community College Route to the Bachelor’s Degree")
