The National Initiative
for Transfer Award Transparency
In the next decade, close to 10 million returning and transfer students will lose an average of almost 20 previously earned credits when they enroll in their new degree programs. Almost 6 million will lose ALL their credits - 27 on average1. As a direct result of this loss, almost 1.5 million of our nation's students will fail to complete their degrees2.
The mission of DegreePool is to increase degree completion by empowering students to compare their likely credit awards before they enroll to find institutions whose policies and degree requirements best align with their personal learning backgrounds.
A Resource for Everyone with Potential College Credit...
• Students transferring directly from one college to the next
• Reentering adults among the 31 million stop-outs with some college/no degree

The Transfer Credit Comparison App
For Returning and Transfer Students
Try It Now!
What's different about returning and transfer students? Credit to transfer.
That is, if  the credit will transfer. Credit loss for the millions returning to college or transferring each year averages 15 to 35 credits*. That matters. It could mean an extra year or more of part-time study for the typical adult learner. It costs more and increases student debt. And, it reduces the odds of completing one's degree.
Now, the Transfer Credit Calculator's predictive technology, in minutes, is able to determine where these returning and transfer students are likely to earn the most credit in transfer for their prior work and have the fewest courses remaining to complete their degrees. The Calculator also compares the approximate tuitions for the estimated courses remaining to complete each degree after transfer credit has been awarded.
