Document Number: 6183The Road Less Traveled? Students Who Enroll in Multiple Institutions - Fifty-nine percent of students who earned a bachelor's degree during the 1999-2000 school year attended more than one college, a trend that is expected to continue. According to the authors, complications with credit transfer or differing course requirements, as well as gaps between enrollment from one institution to the next, elongate the amount of time it takes these students to complete a four-year degree. Demographic data and an explanation of the reasons why students switch colleges or universities also are included. (Katharin Peter, Emily Forrest Cataldi and C.
