The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford is one of 123 colleges and universities named to Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society’s Transfer Honor Roll in recognition of the dynamic pathways it has created to support transfer students.
Phi Theta Kappa is the honor society for students at two-year colleges and universities. It recognizes four-year colleges and universities deemed most friendly to transfer students. This is the first year that Pitt-Bradford has been recognized.
“The Transfer Honor Roll reflects the growing importance of recognizing and responding to the needs of transfer students,” said Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner, president and CEO of the society.
“This award is given to four-year colleges and universities with proven outcomes for transfer success. They are the best at providing a supportive and smooth transition from community college – equating to increased rates of bachelor’s degree attainment for transfer students.”
Pitt-Bradford was the only campus in the Pitt system that was recognized as well as one of only two public universities in Pennsylvania.
Pitt-Bradford provides an extensive database of courses at other universities for students to identify potential transfer credit. It also has specific transfer agreements with 15 other universities and offers merit scholarship for transfer scholarships.
“We do our very best to be transfer-friendly, knowing that students are looking to us to help them earn a Pitt degree without losing out on credits they have already earned at other colleges,” said Bob Dilks, director of transfer and nontraditional student recruitment. “Our goal is to make the transfer process as seamless as possible.”
