Time management, balance, peer connections and finances continue to be a major concern for our students. What specific strategies can we implement to address these areas of concern?
Only 54 out of 298 students who indicated they would transfer intended to transfer when they started in the Fall.
So why do they want to transfer now?Percentage Wanted a different location (e.g., closer to family or friends, city vs. rural, etc.) 32% Wanted a different academic program (changed majors, your major isn't offered here, etc.) 10% Financial issues (too expensive, get more financial aid somewhere else) 12% Wanted a different academic environment (smaller classes, easier classes, more difficult classes) 14% Wanted a different social environment (don't fit in here, etc.) 14% Pursue a degree not offered at UWM (i.e. master's degree, bachelor's degree, associate's degree) 6% Was not accepted into academic program of choice (e.g., nursing school, architecture school, etc.) 2% Wanted to play a sport at a different institution3% Other6%
Where do the potential transfers say they are going via MAP-Works? 50 respondents who intended to transfer shared more information: –30 plan to transfer within UW System Top 3: UW-Madison, UW-Whitewater & UW-Stevens Point 5 plan to transfer to two year schools 25 plan to transfer to four year schools –20 plan to transfer out of the UW System 14 to out-of-state institutions

72% of students who indicated they would transfer at the end of this year did not intend to transfer when they started. Why? What do we do differently through the recruitment process & first six weeks? How do we address the gap between targeted and non-targeted students?
