UT Recognized for Excellence in Supporting Transfer Students

The University of Tampa has been named to Phi Theta Kappa’s 2020 Transfer Honor Roll, which identifies the top four-year colleges and universities that create dynamic pathways to support transfer students.


“The Transfer Honor Roll reflects the growing importance of recognizing and responding to the needs of transfer students,” Phi Theta Kappa president and CEO Lynn Tincher-Ladner said.

UT is one of only 122 institutions nationwide selected to receive this honor, and it is awarded to the top 25% of colleges that earned the highest transfer-friendliness ratings.

Other Florida schools on the honor roll include Eckerd College, Florida International University and Rollins College.

“The Transfer Honor Roll reflects the growing importance of recognizing and responding to the needs of transfer students,” Phi Theta Kappa president and CEO Lynn Tincher-Ladner said. “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.”
