St. John Fisher College was once again selected as among the most transfer-friendly colleges in the nation by Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society (PTK). Fisher was one of 171 colleges and universities to be included PTK’s 2022 Transfer Honor Roll in recognition of the ways the College has supported transfer students.

Spotlighted at the 2022 American Council on Education conference, the Transfer Honor Roll recognizes the importance of creating strong transfer pathways that lead to excellence and success among community college 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 students, admission practices, and bachelor’s degree completion.

“This award is so important because it is based on what students tell us they need from their transfer experience,” said Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner, president and CEO of Phi Theta Kappa. “We are honored to recognize the colleges and universities working exceptionally hard to create stronger pathways to bachelor’s degree completion for all students.”

Phi Theta Kappa is the premier honor society recognizing the academic achievement of students at associate degree-granting colleges and helping them to grow as scholars and leaders. The Society is made up of more than 3.8 million members and nearly 1,300 chapters in 10 countries, with approximately 240,000 active members in the nation’s colleges.
