Over one-third of all students transferred institutions within the past five years, and 38% are over the age of 25. Additionally, over 2 million military service members now have access to the most comprehensive educational opportunities since World War II. Adult, transfer, and veteran students are already at your institution; providing them with the support they need will keep them there through graduation.

Join us in Miami to explore the core components of a comprehensive, coordinated transfer, adult, and veteran student retention strategy. You’ll hear best practices from experienced presenters with both private and public school perspectives, learn how to identify areas of improvement for your own institution, and begin crafting the framework for a strategy at your institution.


This program is designed for enrollment and student affairs practitioners who are looking to develop a cross-functional, coordinated approach to student orientation, engagement, and retention. Professionals working with adult, transfer, and veteran student populations will examine and apply best collaborative practices to take back to their schools and implement. To encourage team participation, when you register 2 people from your institution, a 3rd registration is half-price.


Pre-Conference Workshop: Data Simplified: Working with Institutional Data for Retention

Institutional research data is a powerful tool for helping you understand attrition, plan programs, and predict enrollment. Student affairs and enrollment professionals often struggle with ways to understand data, use it effectively, and work with IR departments to ask the right questions. You will leave with an understanding of the basics of data analysis and ways to manage, extract, and explain results to campus leaders.

Post-Conference Workshop: Building a Peer-Led Support Center

Integration into campus culture by connection to peers can be a key element in retention. Are you thinking about maximizing your efforts by developing a peer-led support program? In this post-conference workshop, you will learn how to make the case for peer-led student space, determine program needs, recruit and train students for your program, and facilitate learning outcomes.
