WKU has been named to Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society’s 2021 Transfer Honor Roll, which recognizes excellence in the development and support of dynamic and innovative transfer pathways for community college transfer students.
WKU, one of 150 colleges and universities recognized by Phi Theta Kappa for 2021, offers more than 75 academic majors and provides excellent educational opportunities for students seeking to finish a bachelor's or associate’s degree. In the fall 2020, 781 of the 1,299 transfer students admitted at WKU (60%) enrolled.
The Transfer Center, the one-stop location for students interested in transferring to WKU, has three counselors who assist students with transfer admission, credit evaluation, advising and much more.
The Transfer Honor Roll, made possible by a $100,000 grant from The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, recognizes four-year colleges and universities that have developed transfer pathways that lead to excellence and success among community college transfer students.
Colleges were selected based on their Transfer Friendliness Rating, which is determined by the Transfer Profile they create in PTK Connect. PTK Connect is Phi Theta Kappa’s online tool that helps students find their best-fit colleges, career pathways, and more.
