Now that we’ve broadened our perspective of the current transfer scene, let's zero in on Targeting Transfer Success with some lively conversation. The Transfer Roundtable is a fantastic way to increase your knowledge of the transfer articulation process, best practices in transfer recruitment and credit placement policy, and get those burning questions answered from your counterparts on ‘the other side’. This is also a great forum for networking and meeting others who regularly navigate the complex world of transfer articulation and recruitment!
