Ohio University has again been recognized as one of the top transfer-friendly schools in the nation, being named to the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society (PTK) Transfer Honor Roll 2022which recognizes the development and support of pathways created for the success of transfer students from community colleges.
“OHIO is committed to providing the support and transfer of resources students need to succeed in a high-quality education at Ohio University,” said Executive Vice President and Vice President Elizabeth Sayrs. “In our partnership with partner community colleges and universities across the state and beyond, OHIO’s primary goal is to anticipate, welcome and Support transfer students in any way necessary to achieve their educational goals. It is an honor to once again be recognized by Phi Kappa Theta as one of the leading transfer-ready schools in the country.
Institutions selected for the Honor Roll were evaluated based on 40 key metrics related to transfer student support and success, including cost and financial aid, campus life for transfer students, admissions practices and baccalaureate options. The Transfer Honor Roll is based on data submitted through an institution’s profile on PTK connection, PTK’s virtual tool that helps students find their college, career path and more. Colleges receive a transfer friendliness rating once they complete their PTK Connect profile, and the honor roll is chosen from the top 25% of colleges.
This is the third consecutive year that OHIO has been recognized and the sixth time overall since 2016. This year, 171 institutions made the list, including only six from Ohio State.
“From our first innovations in accepting transfer credit to new and ongoing relationships with community college partners, OHIO remains committed to serving and developing pathways that provide transfer students with seamless access to the Ohio University experience on all of our campuses and online. We are proud to be recognized for this honor for the third year in a row,” said Vice President of Enrollment Management Candace Boeninger.
OHIO offers a myriad of transfer pathways for students to experience OHIO. To begin the transfer process to OHIO, a student must have completed at least nine semester hours or 12 quarter hours at a regionally accredited institution. Next, the student decides on the desired start date, reviews cost and aid information, submits a transfer request, and requests that transcripts from their previous institution(s) be sent to OHIO.
“This award is so important because it’s based on what students tell us they need from their transfer experience,” said Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner, president and CEO of Phi Theta Kappa, in a statement. “We are honored to recognize colleges and universities that are working exceptionally hard to create stronger pathways to a bachelor’s degree for all students. »
Founded in 1918, Phi Theta Kappa is the oldest, largest and most prestigious honor society recognizing students pursuing two-year degrees, with nearly 1,300 chapters in 10 countries. More than 3.8 million students have been inducted since PTK’s inception, with approximately 240,000 active members on college campuses in all 50 states.
