The transition from high school to college is an important milestone, but it is only one of many steps in the journey through higher education. Interest in the many other transitions students make—through the sophomore year, from one institution to another, and out of college—has grown exponentially in the last decade. At the same time, educators recognize that each transition experience is unique, shaped by the individual student context. A new annotated bibliography helps researchers and practitioners navigate the emerging literature base on college student transitions beyond the first year, with special focus on adult learners, student veterans, and those studying in different cultures.

“’Swirling’ is the new normal it seems, but no comprehensive treatment exists of the various types of student transitions and how educators can help. Finally, we have a resource that marks the territory and points to information useful to both scholars and practitioners.”
