UT Recognized for Excellence in Supporting Transfer Students

The University of Tampa has been named to Phi Theta Kappa’s 2019 Transfer Honor Roll, which identifies the top four-year colleges and universities that create dynamic pathways to support transfer students.

UT is one of only 78 institutions nationwide selected to receive this honor. This distinguished honor is awarded to the top 25 percent of colleges who earned the highest transfer friendliness ratings.

Other Florida schools on the honor roll include Eckerd College 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. “We know community college transfer students perform as well as or better than non-transfer students at four-year colleges. It’s more important than ever before to highlight what these colleges are doing right to promote transfer success and to encourage others to follow suit.”
