Illinois State University is among a select group of 123 universities across the country named to the Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society’s 2020 Transfer Honor Roll, continuing the University’s reputation as a top destination for transfer students.
The award recognizes four-year colleges and universities for exemplary support for community college transfers.
Illinois State has been included on the Transfer Honor Roll since the award’s inception in 2016.
Institutions are selected for the honor based on information they submit to create a school profile on PTK Connect, a platform used by prospective transfer students to gather information and find their best fit at a four-year school. The portal uses that information to generate a transfer-friendliness rating.
Illinois State welcomes about 2,500 transfer Redbirds to campus each year, and the University offers support services and guidance to ensure a seamless transition for those students.
Phi Theta Kappa is recognized as the official honor society for community colleges by the American Association of Community Colleges.
