Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society Transfer Honor Roll 2024

Stockton is one of 228 colleges and universities that are being acknowledged for “the dynamic pathways they have created to support transfer students.” 

The honor roll—determined by 40 key metrics related to the support and success of transfer students—is chosen from among the top 25% of highest-rated colleges that have submitted data to PTK Connect, the honor society’s online tool for helping students find colleges and career opportunities.

“It's truly an honor for Stockton University to be recognized for the third consecutive year by Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society,” Heather Medina, director of Admissions, said. “We are dedicated to creating pathways that empower community college transfer students to succeed. Our commitment to affordability, robust campus life, seamless admission processes and strong support for bachelor’s degree completion underscores why Stockton is considered 'transfer-friendly' for students.”

“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,” said Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner, president and CEO of Phi Theta Kappa. “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.”

Almost 40% of Stockton students are transfers, with the majority coming from community colleges. Stockton accepts on average 99% of credits transferred from another college.
