    Ursuline among top four-year colleges in US for transfer students by Phi Theta Kappa honor society

    February 8, 2018

    Ursuline College has been named a top four-year college for transfer students by Phi Theta Kappa, a 3.5-million-member honor society recognizing academic achievement at colleges that grant associate’s degrees.

    The organization named 112 colleges and universities across the U.S. to its 2018 Transfer Honor Roll.

    “We are thrilled that Ursuline has been recognized by the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society as a 2018 Transfer Honor Roll member,” said Danielle Lorenzi, associate director of admission and transfer operations. “Here at Ursuline we strive to create a personal connection with students, and walk them through a seamless transition to our campus to earn their bachelor’s degrees and launch fulfilling careers.”

    In addition to its traditional undergraduate program, Ursuline also offers a degree-completion program for working adults with classes held in the evening and on Saturdays in flexible five-week blocks. The program, called UCAP for Ursuline College Accelerated Program, provides one-on-one support and guidance for students seeking to complete bachelor’s degrees while tending to family and job responsibilities.

    UCAP Director Brooke A. Scharlott said her program can be an ideal option for busy students looking to complete bachelor’s degrees. “We are right there with our students from registration through graduation. We know that completing a bachelor’s degree can be daunting so we provide the support that students need.”

    Open to all regionally accredited baccalaureate degree-granting institutions, Phi Theta Kappa’s Transfer Honor Roll recognizes excellence and success in community college transfer pathway development. To be considered, participating institutions complete an application detailing their community college transfer programs. Applications are evaluated in the areas of scholarship and financial aid, admissions outreach, student support services, and student engagement opportunities.

    Phi Theta Kappa President and CEO Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner said “The Transfer Honor Roll Program identifies colleges and universities that understand the unique needs of transfer students and applauds the dynamic pathways these colleges have created to continue fostering student success among transfer students at the four-year college.”

    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 nine nations. Learn more at
