Hi Mike,


We would not categorize a second degree seeking student as a transfer.  A transfer has started at one institution and is bringing over credits (maybe from multiple sources) to complete their degree.  The second degree seeking student, even if their UG degree is from another institution, has already completed a degree and is continuing their education.

Hi all.  Please excuse the cross-post.  Would you classify a student working on a second bachelor's degree as a transfer student?  Why or why not?  Thanks.
