Marquette has been named to Phi Theta Kappa’s 2020 Transfer Honor Roll. Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society was created in 1918 to recognize the dynamic efforts that have been made to support transfer students. PTK currently has more than 2 million members in more than 1,250 chapters.
This distinguished honor is awarded to the top 25% of colleges who have earned the highest Transfer Friendliness Ratings by completing a Transfer Profile in PTK Connect.
PTK Connect is Phi Theta Kappa’s online tool that helps students find their best-fit colleges, career pathways and more. Students can search for colleges by name, scholarship offerings or cost, and can use the institutions’ profiles to help evaluate where they’d like to enroll.
“The Transfer Honor Roll reflects the growing importance of recognizing and responding to the needs of transfer students,” Phi Theta Kappa President and CEO Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner
said. “This award is given to four-year colleges and universities with proven outcomes for transfer success. They are the best at providing a supportive and smooth transition from community college — equating to increased rates of bachelor’s degree attainment for transfer students.”
As a Transfer Honor Roll institution, Marquette will be featured in the 2020 Phi Theta Kappa Partners in Excellence publication, which is distributed to higher education leaders nationally; and will be acknowledged on Phi Theta Kappa’s website and media channels.
