Phi Theta Kappa has once again placed Friends University on its 2018 Transfer Honor Roll, which recognizes excellence in community college transfer pathways. This is the third year since Phi Theta Kappa created the transfer honor roll, and Friends University has received this recognition all three years. Friends University is one of only 112 institutions in the nation to receive this honor, and it is one of only three in Kansas.
Institutions that apply for the recognition are evaluated in the areas of scholarship and financial aid, admissions outreach, student support services, and student engagement opportunities.
“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 Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner, Phi Theta Kappa’s president and CEO.
“Friends University is honored to be named to PTK’s honor roll, which is evidence of Friends University’s welcoming atmosphere toward community college transfer students,” said Dr. Amy Bragg Carey, Friends University president. “We are constantly expanding the articulation agreements between community colleges and Friends University as we seek to provide support for all students. We are especially excited about a recent partnership with Butler Community College that offers their students a very detailed study path to transfer into our new bachelor’s in cyber security program.”
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.
Friends University, a Christian University of Quaker heritage, equips students to honor God and serve others by integrating their intellectual, spiritual and professional lives.
