NSC Transfers Data

The Office of Research has successfully imported a large data set of National Student Clearinghouse information into our new data analytics platform (Zogotech). This data is vital in understanding how many of our students are transferring to 4-year colleges, a critical metric that positively impacts the funding allocation to the college via the student center funding formula. We are excited about having easy access to this data for continuous improvement, equity analysis, and ad-hoc reporting requests. Using this data, we generated a visualization in Tableau that displays the transfer patterns of our students.

Our analysis indicates that the top five 4-year public universities that COS students transfer to are Southern Oregon University (11% of total 4-year public transfers), Chico State (9%), and Sac State (4%), Cal Poly Humboldt (4%), and Oregon Institute of Technology (4%).

In comparison, the top five 4-year private universities that COS students have transferred to are Simpson University (9% of total 4-year private transfers), Western Governors University (7%), National University (5%), University of Phoenix (4%), and The University of Arizona Global Campus (3%).
