Illinois State recognized for service to transfer students
Illinois State University is among a select group of institutions nationwide named to the Phi Theta Kappa Transfer Honor Roll, which identifies four-year colleges and universities that offer exemplary support for community college transfers.
Illinois State is one of 112 colleges and universities across the nation named to the 2018 Transfer Honor Roll and is one of only 45 included in the listing since the Honor Roll began in 2016.
Honor Roll institutions are selected based on engagement, collaboration, impact, and achievements related to the transfer of community college students as well as partnerships, support, admissions outreach, scholarships/financial aid, student engagement opportunities, and institutional priorities.
Each year, more than 2,600 students transfer to Illinois State from community colleges and other higher education institutions across the state and the nation. The University provides a wide array of advising and support services to ease their transition.
The 112 colleges and universities named to the Transfer Honor Roll will be featured in the 2018 Phi Theta Kappa Partners in Excellence publication, distributed to higher education leaders nationally, and will receive recognition on Phi Theta Kappa’s website and at PTK Catalyst, Phi Theta Kappa’s annual convention in Kansas City, Missouri, April 19-21.
Phi Theta Kappa is recognized as the official honor society for community colleges by the American Association of Community Colleges.
