Transfer students from northern ON tend to travel south: Study


Cathlene Hillier (Crandall University), Yujiro Sano (Nipissing University), Roger Pizarro Milian (University of Toronto), and David Zarifa (NipU) have published an article in the on transfer patterns in Ontario postsecondary education. The researchers mapped transfer student flows across ON and created a statistical model for predicting student transfer. They found that postsecondary students from the northern parts of ON tend to transfer to institutions in southern ON at a greater rate than southern students transfer north. The authors discuss possible strategies for policymakers and northern postsecondary institutions to both retain and attract transfer students.
