This research study investigated student involvement/engagement based on educational origin. The 190 students in the sample graduated with bachelors’ degrees from a public university in the southeastern United States in either 2006 or 2007. Results of the data analysis showed that students were involved/engaged at their university on statistically different levels based on their educational origin. Indigenous students were different from the transfer students but the transfer students were the same regardless from where they originated. The indigenous students were the most involved, followed by transfers from junior/community colleges. Transfer students from four-year colleges and universities were the least involved/engaged.
