Most Transfer Students

Students transfer colleges for a number of reasons. Some change majors and move to a school that better suits their new path. Others start at a two-year college before transferring to finish their degree at a four-year college or university. Even if a first choice college simply wasn't the right fit, students can take heart in knowing they're not alone. As the schools on this list demonstrated based on the number of transfers enrolling in fall 2012, thousands of students transfer schools every year.
