For the third year in a row, The College of Saint Rose was named to the 2020 Transfer Honor Roll by Phi Theta Kappa (PTK), an honor society for students who attend an associate-degree-granting college.
Saint Rose was one of 123 colleges across the country and one of nine in New York State to receive this honor, which recognizes four-year colleges and universities that provide a seamless and supportive experience to students who transfer from community colleges.
“We strive to make our transfer experience productive and welcoming for students, valuing their academic work and past contributions while helping them prepare for a successful future,” said Sandra Battaglino, director of transfer enrollment at Saint Rose. “PTK members thrive at Saint Rose, so it is wonderful to be continuously recognized by this honor society!”
Award winners were judged on their “transfer friendliness rating,” which is calculated based on their PTK Connect Transfer Profile, an online platform that students use to search for colleges. According to Phi Theta Kappa, the top 25 percent highest-rated colleges are named to the Transfer Honor Roll.
“This award is given to four-year colleges and universities with proven outcomes for transfer success,” said Phi Theta Kappa President and CEO Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner. “They are the best at providing a supportive and smooth transition from a community college — equating to increased rates of bachelor’s degree attainment for transfer 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 3.5 million members and nearly 1,300 chapters in nine nations. Learn more here.
