Marquette named to Phi Theta Kappa’s 2021 Transfer Honor Roll

Marquette has been named to Phi Theta Kappa’s 2021 Transfer Honor Roll.

The prestigious honor is awarded to the top 25% of colleges who have earned the highest “Transfer Friendliness Ratings” on PTK Connect 

PTK Connect is Phi Theta Kappa’s online tool that helps students find their best-fit colleges, career paths and more.

Students can search for colleges by name, scholarship offerings or cost, and can use institution profiles to help evaluate where they would like to enroll.  

“The Transfer Honor Roll reflects the growing importance of recognizing and responding to the needs of transfer students,” said Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner, Phi Theta Kappa president and CEO. “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.” 

Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society was established in 1918 to recognize the dynamic efforts that have been made to support transfer students.  

The Transfer Honor Roll was created in 2016 and Marquette has been named on the list four times out of the six years.

Marquette is one of three schools in Wisconsin named on the Transfer Honor Roll this year.
