About Us

The National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students (NISTS) conducts, promotes, and disseminates disciplined inquiries to inform and improve transfer policy and practice. Recently relocated to the University of North Georgia, the Institute strives to increase access to and attainment of certificate, associate, and baccalaureate credentials by promoting successful transfer and articulation for community college and university students. NISTS attempts to bridge knowledge, policies, and practice by bringing together individuals, two-and four-year institutions, state agencies, higher education associations and foundations, and other interested entities to thoroughly study the issues related to the transfer process so as to facilitate student success and degree completion. These goals and objectives are achieved through a combination of research, education, and service.
