Columbia College Recognized for Exemplary Transfer Pathways

COLUMBIA, SC – March 27, 2020 - Columbia College is proud to be recognized by Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society on their 2020 Transfer Honor Roll. Each year, the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society recognizes four-year colleges and universities that have developed a process that leads to excellence and success among community college transfer students. This year Columbia College was recognized, joining 122 other colleges and universities, for creating a dynamic pathway to support transfer students.

“The Transfer Honor Roll reflects the growing importance of recognizing and responding to the needs of transfer students,” Phi Theta Kappa President and CEO Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner said. “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.”

Phi Theta Kappa selects colleges and universities based on their Transfer Friendliness Rating, which is determined by the Transfer Profile they create in PTK Connect. PTK Connects is Phi Theta Kappa’s online tool that helps students find their best-fit colleges, career pathways, and more. Students can search for colleges by name, scholarship offerings, or cost, and they can use the institutions’ profiles to help evaluate where they’d like to enroll.

“We’re very excited to hear about this recognition. Our goal is to always make the transfer process as simple and beneficial as possible for students,” said Dean of Admissions Ryan Longe.

Columbia College is very proud of this recognition and honored to be mentioned among the other great colleges and universities on the 2020 Transfer Honor Roll. Learn more at
