Illinois State University is among a select group of 150 universities across the country named to the Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society’s 2021 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.
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 2,000 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.
