CEDAR FALLS, Iowa – The University of Northern Iowa has been named to the Phi Theta Kappa 2018 Transfer Honor Roll, which identifies the top four-year colleges and universities creating dynamic pathways to support transfer students.
Open to all regionally accredited baccalaureate degree-granting institutions, Phi Theta Kappa’s Transfer Honor Roll recognized only 112 colleges and universities for excellence and success in community college transfer pathway development. To be considered, participating institutions complete an application detailing their community college transfer programs. Applications are evaluated in the areas of scholarship and financial aid, admissions outreach, student support services and student engagement opportunities. Transfer Honor Roll colleges will be recognized at PTK Catalyst 2018, Phi Theta Kappa’s annual convention, in Kansas City, Missouri, April 19-21, 2018.
"In order to ensure their continued success, the Transfer Honor Roll Program identifies colleges and universities that understand the unique needs of transfer students and applauds the dynamic pathways these colleges have created to continue fostering student success among transfer students at the four-year college," said Lynn Tincher-Ladner, president and CEO of Phi Theta Kappa.
“The University of Northern Iowa is very honored and pleased to be recognized by Phi Theta Kappa," said Matt Kroeger, associate vice president for enrollment management at UNI. "Approximately one-third of our undergraduates come to UNI as transfer students. This recognition highlights the support that we provide to transfer students when they discover UNI and aligns with our goal of being the top choice destination for transfer students in Iowa."
Phi Theta Kappa is the premier honor society recognizing the academic achievement of students at associate degree-granting colleges and helping them to grow as scholars and leaders. The Society is made up of more than 3.5 million members and nearly 1,300 chapters in nine nations.
