Union Institute & University is one of 78 colleges and universities across the country named to Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society’s 2019 Transfer Honor Roll in recognition of the dynamic pathways Union has created to support transfer students.
“This is a tremendous honor for Union and a great advantage for our students,” said Sonya M. Fultz, director of Union’s, Academic Partnerships and Innovation. “This certifies that transfer students to Union will find a transfer-friendly university with easy access and seamless career pathways.”
Union offers a $3,500 scholarship exclusively to members of Phi Theta Kappa.
“In addition to the scholarship, students may register for 100 percent online degree programs with 8-week courses for multiple start terms per year and transfer up to 90 credits toward their undergraduate degree,” said Fultz.
Union will play a prominent role in the Phi Theta Kappa’s Catalyst conference from April 4-6, 2019, in Orlando, Florida. Union is a sponsor of the conference and Fultz will present “Transfer Pathways Made Easy” to advisors, and serve as a conversation facilitator during the Celebration of Scholars & Transfer Partners Breakfast. More than 200 students are expected to attend the event, designed as a networking session to help students explore transfer, workforce, and career prep tips.
The Transfer Honor Roll recognizes excellence and success in community college transfer pathway development among four-year colleges and universities. It identifies colleges and universities that understand the unique needs of community college transfer students and applauds the dynamic pathways these colleges have created to continue fostering student success at the four-year college. Colleges are selected for the Honor Roll based on their Transfer Friendliness Rating and participation in the PTK Connect online app.
