Research Blog 10: Final Abstract, Bibliography, and link


The phenomenon of Transfer shock has been being researched since 1965.  Significant research has been done, but as more research is done more factors that contribute to transfer shock are discovered. Institutions across the nations have been attempting new programs to help reduce transfer shock, but the problem still continues. The term "Transfer Student capital" offers plausible explanations and solutions that can be implemented into our institutions to help minimize and reduce transfer shock among students.    Through research about factors of Transfer shock and Solutions to Transfer Shock through Transfer Student Capital these factors and idea bring great findings that minimizing Transfer shock needs to me strategic, individualized, as well as an institution wide involvement.
