TESU Earns Spot on PTK 2024 Transfer Honor Roll

Phi Theta Kappa Transfer Honor Roll

Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society (PTK) has recognized Thomas Edison State University by naming it among the top 228 colleges and universities on the prestigious 2024 Transfer Honor Roll. This honor underscores the University’s exceptional efforts in creating dynamic and supportive pathways tailored to the needs of transfer students.

The Transfer Honor Roll is determined by 40 key metrics related to the support and success of transfer students, including college cost and financial aid, campus life for transfer, admission practices and bachelor’s degree completion. The Transfer Honor Roll was based on analysis from the National Student Clearinghouse, and on data submitted through the four-year institution’s profile on PTK Connect, Phi Theta Kappa’s online tool designed to help students find their best-fit colleges and career pathways.

“The inclusion on the PTK Transfer Honor Roll highlights our commitment to ensuring that transfer students have the resources and support they need to succeed,” said Juliette Punchello, senior director of Enrollment Management at Thomas Edison State University.

Colleges completing the PTK Connect profile are given a Transfer Friendliness Rating. The Honor Roll is chosen from among the top 25% highest-rated colleges.

The Transfer Honor Roll recognizes the importance of creating strong transfer pathways that lead to excellence and success among community college transfer students, and this year’s winners had exceptional outcomes, several of which included:

  • Average percent of transfer in undergraduate population – 37%
  • Average bachelor’s degree completion rate among transfers – 77%
  • Average credit transferred toward a degree major and/or plan – 82%
  • Average percent of transfer students receiving merit-based financial aid – 67%

“The goal of most students attending community college is earning a bachelor’s degree, but few do because of financial barriers and the complexity of the transfer process,” says Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner, president and CEO of Phi Theta Kappa. “We are proud to recognize the exceptional colleges and universities that go above and beyond to create accessible pathways to bachelor’s degree completion for community college transfer students.”
