Abstract

This article describes the unique adjustment challenges facing mid-year transfer students so that administrators and orientation planners can tailor programs and services to better address the needs of those students, leading to improved persistence and graduation rates. This research is based on the findings produced from two studies which detail different aspects of the unique adjustment experienced by mid-year transfer students at two different institutions. Specifically, this article addressed a gap in the scholarly literature pertaining to those asects of adjustment that can be addressed in orientations for mid-year transfer students.
