Friends University named to Phi Theta Kappa’s 2024 Transfer Honor Roll 

WICHITA, KS— Phi Theta Kappa has once again placed Friends University on its 2024 Transfer Honor Roll, this being the ninth year in a row. Friends University is one of 228 institutions commended for their outstanding transfer-friendliness.  

Open to all regionally accredited baccalaureate degree-granting institutions, Phi Theta Kappa recognizes 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 scholarship and financial aid, admissions outreach, student support services, and student engagement opportunities.    

President and CEO of Phi Theta Kappa Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner said members of the honor roll have a higher rate of baccalaureate degree completion (72%) than the traditional community college student (29%). To ensure their continued success, the program identifies colleges and universities that understand the unique needs of community college transfer students and applauds the dynamic pathways these colleges have created to continue fostering student success at the four-year college. 

“With a 91% student success rate, Phi Theta Kappa members have a proven track record of success,” said Dr. Tincher-Ladner. “We are proud to acclaim the exceptional colleges and universities that go above and beyond to create accessible pathways to bachelor’s degree completion for community college transfer students.”  

Phi Theta Kappa is the first 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 over 4.3 million members and nearly 1,300 chapters in 11 countries, with about 240,000 active members in the nation’s colleges. Learn more at
