Experts say the change is likely a result of increased recognition of the value of a diverse student body, the pressure that some small colleges are feeling to bring in tuition-paying students during this economic downturn, and awareness from college administrators that community college transfer students often bring a special set of strengths with them to four-year institutions.
The trend towards more aggressive recruiting of community college graduates will likely be good news for those students who hope to transfer to four-year institutions. Community college graduates with strong academic records will be able to examine the financial and academic resources that prospective colleges, both private and public, have to offer, and choose the best option available.
