Phi Theta Kappa recognizes Freed-Hardeman University for exemplary transfer pathways


Phi Theta Kappa’s 2021 Transfer Honor Roll has placed Freed-Hardeman University among the top transfer-friendly colleges in the nation.
The Transfer Honor Roll, made possible by a $100,000 grant from The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, recognizes four-year colleges and universities that have developed transfer pathways that lead to excellence and success among community college transfer students. It is awarded to the top 25 percent of colleges to earn the highest rating by completing a transfer profile. FHU is among 150 colleges included on the list.
“The Transfer Honor Roll reflects the growing importance of recognizing and responding to the needs of transfer students,” Phi Theta Kappa President and CEO Dr. 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.”
Freed-Hardeman was selected as being among the most transfer-friendly schools in the nation, determined by its Transfer Profile in PTK Connect. The profile includes information about admissions practices, cost of attendance, campus life and recruitment practices. The result is a Transfer Friendly rating that allows prospective community college transfer students to find the college that best meets their unique needs.
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 11 nations, with approximately 240,000 active members in the nation’s colleges.
