Reverse Transfers

Gilchrist, C. & Mandlehr, K. (2009). Boomerang students: Transfers return to the four-year institution. Esource for College Transitions 7(1), 1-3.

This article is about a study regarding reverse transfer students from the University of Louisville. It helps to discuss the issues that face students who attempt to return to campus after attending a community college. Although the authors refer to boomerang students, because they are returning to the same four-year institution that they first attended, the issues are similar to all swirl transfer students.
