Bellevue University Named Top College for Community College Transfer Students
University Is Only Nebraska Institution Recognized on 2022 Honor Roll and One of Just 171 Nationwide
Phi Theta Kappa has named Bellevue University, one of the nation’s leaders in preparing students for lifelong career success with career- relevant knowledge and skills, to its prestigious 2022 Phi Theta Kappa Transfer Honor Roll.
The Honor Roll recognizes the top four-year colleges and universities nationwide for creating dynamic and innovative pathways to support community college students.
Bellevue University was the only Nebraska institution recognized on the Honor Roll and one of 171 institutions recognized nationwide.
According to Phi Theta Kappa, colleges were selected based on their Transfer Friendliness Rating, which is determined by the online profile the college creates in PTK Connect. PTK Connect is Phi Theta Kappa’s online tool that helps students find their best-fit colleges, career pathways and more. The tool includes specific information about admissions practices, cost of attendance, campus life, recruitment practices and peer reviews and reflects the transfer student experience at specific colleges. The top 25% highest-rated colleges are named to the PTK Transfer Honor Roll.
We are honored to recognize the colleges and universities working exceptionally hard to create stronger pathways to bachelor's degree completion for all students.
Dr. Mary Hawkins, Bellevue University President, said Bellevue University's consistent presence on the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Roll exemplifies Bellevue University’s commitment to helping motivated community college graduates advance and achieve their career potential by completing their bachelor’s degree.
“I'm incredibly proud that more than 2,000 transfer students earned a degree at Bellevue University last year” said Dr. Hawkins. She said the Honor Roll recognition is shared with its network of 35 community college partners across the country. “We fully support their innovative work in building workforce-ready talent."
“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.”
