This study considers 5 comparative questions about the academic performance of college transfer students in their baccalaureate completion studies at Trent University. Analysing the academic records of over 5 recent cohorts of at least 241 students each, it compares the performance of • transfer and direct entry students, • students transferring under a transfer agreement and those transferring outside an agreement, and • graduates of the Fleming College University Transfer Program relative to direct entry students. In addition, it investigates: • the degree to which community college grades predict success rates in university1, and • the variation of graduation rates and degree completion timelines between college transfer and direct entry students.
