Fisher Included on Phi Theta Kappa Transfer Honor Roll

March 29, 2017

Phi Theta Kappa, the oldest, largest, and most prestigious honor society recognizing students pursuing two-year degrees, has named St. John Fisher College to its Transfer Honor Roll for the second year in a row.

Fisher was named to the 2017 Transfer Honor Roll.

The list identifies 65 four-year colleges and universities for creating dynamic pathways to support community college transfer students. Applications were judged based on engagement, collaboration, impact, and achievements related to the transfer of community college students as well as partnerships, support, admissions outreach, scholarships/financial aid, student engagement opportunities, and institutional priorities.

“St. John Fisher College is proud to be recognized by Phi Theta Kappa as a member of the Transfer Honor Roll,” said Jose Perales, vice president for enrollment management at Fisher. “The College shares Phi Theta Kappa’s commitment to providing opportunities, enhancing experiences, and supporting achievement of our transfer students.”

At Fisher, one in three undergraduates is a transfer student, and each year the College welcomes more than 350 transfer students to campus. The College has 2+2 partnership agreements with 10 community colleges throughout New York State, ensuring a seamless transition for students looking to complete their baccalaureate degree.

In addition, the College hosts Transfer Tuesdays, Academic Discovery Sessions, and Instant Decision Days for transfer students, providing opportunities for interested students to meet with admissions counselors, faculty, staff, and students to learn about transfer credit evaluation, scholarships and financial aid, academic offerings, and student life.
