First, we document the extreme degree to which community college transfer students are sensitive to distance. Relative to recent high school graduates, community college transfer students are considerably less likely to choose a four-year institution located far away. For example, at Miami-Dade College, the largest source of transfer students in Florida, 80% of transfer students choose nearby Florida International University, compared to only 4% of students who transfer to the state flagship school, the University of Florida. These patterns are important given the large disparities that exist between different four-year institutions in quality measures such as instructional expenditures and graduation rates. Second, we show that even though transfer students as a group appear to be more geographically constrained than those who recently graduated from high school, there is still some extent to which high achieving community college students eventually sort into better four-year universities.
