The Triton College Transfer Center, which opened its doors in early Spring 2020, is 100% Title V funded. The college's transfer culture continues to evolve in a positive direction and staff have been given autonomy to create many new initiatives. The center also monitors student cohort retention and completion and strives to increase the number of partnerships and transfer guides for four year institutions.
