The Transfer Honor Roll is determined by 40 key metrics related to the support and success of transfer students, including college cost and financial aid, campus life for transfer, admission practices, and bachelor’s degree completion. The Transfer Honor Roll is based on analysis from the National Student Clearinghouse, and on data submitted through PTK Connect, Phi Theta Kappa’s online tool designed to help students find their best-fit colleges and career pathways.

Colleges completing the PTK Connect profile are given a Transfer Friendliness Rating. The Honor Roll is chosen from among the top 25 percent highest-rated colleges, which this year included 171 schools.

“This award is so important because it is based on what students tell us they need from their transfer experience,” says Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner, president and CEO of Phi Theta Kappa. “We are honored to recognize the colleges and universities working exceptionally hard to create stronger pathways to bachelor’s degree completion for all students.”

Spotlighted at the 2022 American Council on Education (ACE) conference, the Transfer Honor Roll recognizes the importance of creating strong transfer pathways that lead to excellence and success among community college transfer students.

Trevecca emphasizes a supportive environment and smooth process for transfer students, and the school continues to add new offerings and opportunities for community college transfers. Beginning this fall, for example, a new program partnership with Motlow State Community College will allow Motlow medical office students to transition easily into Trevecca’s bachelor’s program for health care administration. MSCC associate degree graduates will have the option to continue taking classes in Tullahoma until they reach the final 33 credit hours in Trevecca’s degree program.
