Transfer Honor Roll

Does your four-year college recognize the needs of and properly support transfer students? They do if they are listed on Phi Theta Kappa’s annual Transfer Honor Roll.

Eligibility

All regionally accredited four-year degree granting institutions who admit transfer students a minimum of once annually are eligible to apply and will be evaluated in six areas:

  • Transfer Data
  • Admissions
  • Cost of Attendance
  • Campus Life
  • Recruitment Practices
  • Peer Reviews

Application Process

Applications will be scored based on the responses submitted on your institution’s transfer profile. Updates can be made to transfer profiles year-round. To be considered for the Transfer Honor Roll, your institution’s transfer profile must be completed by December 10, 2021 at 5pm CST.

Adjustments will be made to accommodate for the size of institution, cost of attendance, student enrollment, and geographic limitations. The top 25% of applicants will be awarded the Transfer Honor Roll award for excellence in supporting two-year college transfer for that year. Winners will be notified in March 2022.

Benefits Received

Transfer Honor Roll institutions will receive the following:

  • Transfer Honor Roll Press Kit, including a press release and seal for promotions
  • National recognition through various media channels
  • Transfer-Friendly Rating
  • Recognition as a 2022 Phi Theta Kappa Partner in Excellence
  • Phi Theta Kappa website, press release, and social media acknowledgement
  • Commemorative award and certificate of recognition
  • Recognized during PTK Catalyst 2022

Learn more about becoming a Transfer Honor Roll Institution at PTK Connect

Phi Theta Kappa recognizes the importance of your institutional commitment and investment of resources to support transfer students. To honor excellence and success in transfer pathway development, we invite you to participate in our annual national recognition program, the Phi Theta Kappa Transfer Honor Roll, to showcase your institution’s best practices.

Details you submit on your application will populate institutional profiles featured on our transfer platform, PTK Connect, and generate a transfer-friendly rating, providing thousands of prospective students with relevant data to inform their transfer decisions.

There’s no cost to apply or to make your enhanced profile visible and searchable among transfer-bound students researching best-fit institutions and scholarships. Earn recognition for your transfer-friendly practices, leverage PTK’s endorsement to recruit future students, and gain free publicity and exposure for your institution.

With a 91% student success rate, Phi Theta Kappa members have a proven track record of success. Our members transfer at a much higher rate (72%) than the traditional community college student (29%). In order to ensure their continued success, the Transfer Honor Roll Program identifies colleges and universities that understand the unique needs of community college transfer students and applauds the dynamic pathways these colleges have created to continue fostering student success at the four-year college.
