Non‐Traditional Paths: New International Student Pathways to the Baccalaureate
There is a growing “swirling” trend of students alternating between 2- and 4-year colleges. The non-linear paths traveled by many community college students often take them through multiple colleges and/or through patterns of stop-out and return.

This manuscript includes important implications for practitioners and others at community colleges.
