This paper highlights the lessons learned from two successful programs for transfer students in engineering and computer science. The most recent program has a graduation rate of over 95%. All of the students in the program have unmet financial need, and more than 60% are female or an underrepresented minority. Dr. Mary R. Anderson-Rowland shares 30 key strategies she learned over 10 years of running these programs that you can use in your own institution.
