Wilmington University Recognized Nationally for Transfer Pathways

Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society (PTK) has recognized Wilmington University nationally as one of 150 colleges and universities on its 2021 Transfer Honor Roll.

This is meaningful recognition for Wilmington University staff, who recognize that the transfer experience is challenging. Through generous transfer credit acceptance and flexible bachelor’s degree completion programs, the University strives to provide transfer students with a smooth experience and personalized support. The University also provides $1,000 annually to five active PTK members continuing their education at Wilmington University.

“Transferring to a new academic environment can be overwhelming,” says Wilmington University President Dr. LaVerne T. Harmon. “Our goal is to help every transfer student overcome specific administrative hurdles. We’re dedicated to offering them the excellent services they deserve and ensuring that they feel appreciated, welcomed, and supported at Wilmington University. We are humbled by Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society’s recognition and inspired to continue our work as a transfer-friendly university.”

According to a statement by Phi Theta Kappa President and CEO Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner in a media release, “The Transfer Honor Roll reflects the growing importance of recognizing and responding to the needs of transfer students. 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.”
