Community College Transfer Students Making an Impact at Elite Colleges

NPR recently reported on how Princeton admitted 13 transfer students this fall – the first time Princeton has done so in THREE DECADES!

Because of the success of those students, Princeton has decided to reinstate the transfer program by encouraging students from “low-income families, the military and from community colleges.”

Reynolds Librarians wanted to highlight some of the article’s findings and encourage you all to read it – and apply to Princeton!

  • Community colleges enroll 41 percent of all U.S. undergraduates.
  • 56 percent of Native American undergrads are enrolled in community colleges.
  • 52 percent of Hispanic undergrads are enrolled in community colleges.
  • 43 percent of African American undergrads are enrolled in community colleges.

We are so proud of all of you!
