UMN Morris recognized among the most transfer-friendly colleges in the nation

The University of Minnesota Morris is one of 228 colleges and universities that has been named to the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society (PTK) 2024 Transfer Honor Roll. This distinction selected as being among the most transfer-friendly colleges in the nation.

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.

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

UMN Morris is one of six Minnesota institutions to be included in the 2024 Honor Roll.

According to Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner, President and CEO of Phi Theta Kappa, ““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. 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.”
