UF is one of 40 named to the inaugural list compiled by Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, which recognizes and encourages scholarship among two-year college students by providing leadership and service opportunities. List applicants were judged 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.
Those named will receive the “Transfer Honor Roll” designation on the organization’s online transfer platform, CollegeFish.org and special recognition at its 2016 annual convention in Maryland on April 7-9. Phi Theta Kappa will also be releasing a study regarding transfer success based on the information provided in Honor Roll applications.
Director of Scholarship Operations Christin Grissom said the new recognition program reflects the growing importance of transfer in helping the U.S. achieve its college completion goals, and will promote further study and sharing of best practices.
Grissom added that colleges and universities that provide high-quality transfer programs benefit from the rich perspective and diversity community college students bring to the student body.
The University of Findlay has articulation agreements with nine community colleges, offers one of the largest scholarship packages for students in the state of Ohio, and has a dedicated transfer team to help students at all other colleges and universities who wish to enroll at UF.
