Hiram College was recently named to Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Honor Society’s 2023 Transfer Honor Roll in recognition of the dynamic pathways created to support transfer students. Known as a premier honor society, PTK recognizes the importance of creating strong transfer pathways that lead to excellence and success among community college transfer students.   

The Transfer Honor Roll recognizes four-year colleges and universities that have developed transfer pathways that lead to excellence and success among community college transfer students. Institutions that made the list were selected based on their Transfer Friendliness Rating, determined by the Transfer Profile in PTK Connect, an online tool that helps students find their best-fit colleges, career pathways, and more. The Honor Roll is chosen from among the top 25 percent highest-rated colleges each year.   

Hiram is one of 208 U.S. colleges and universities to be named to the list.   

“We are proud to again be recognized by Phi Theta Kappa for our ongoing commitment to supporting transfer students,” said Andrea Welch, Ph.D., vice president for enrollment management and marketing. “Hiram’s admission team works with each transfer student individually to help them on their educational journey, and as an institution, we will continue to strive to remove the barriers to earning a degree that so many students often face.” 

Hiram College offers several transfer pathways for students from accredited two- and four-year institutions for fall and spring semesters or to enroll in summer courses. All admitted transfer students are eligible to receive a merit-based scholarship annually. Students who have earned their associate degree or students who have earned 64 or more credits may transfer those credits as a block, giving eligible students the opportunity to meet core curriculum without having to take additional general education courses.
