After high school graduation, most students attend a two-year community college with the hopes of transferring to a bigger four-year college or university. Typically, their grades were not as high as they should have been, they were not admitted to their school of choice or their financial circumstances played a significant role in their decision to not transfer to a four-year school.
But, according to U.S. News & World Report, spring 2013 saw an all-time high in transfer student enrollment: more than 573,000 students transferred to more than 1,193 schools.
The University of Texas, Arlington took the top spot for the highest new-transfer acceptance rate of 93.8 percent, while California State University, Long Beach's rate was 36.7 percent.
Other California-based colleges with the most transfer students included California State University, Fullerton and California State University, Northridge.
