This study is focusing on how high performing transfer partnerships (HPTP) between 2- and 4-year colleges and universities (which may identify as partnerships) work on the ground. By high performing, we refer to institutional pairs whose underserved and aggregate student populations are achieving higher rates of success in baccalaureate retention and completion than institutional pairs with average or below average outcomes in these areas for underserved and aggregate student populations in the state.
