Trevecca named among top universities for transfer students

Trevecca Nazarene University was recently named among 150 colleges and universities to the Transfer Honor Roll compiled by Phi Theta Kappa, an international honor society for students enrolled in community colleges. This grouping of institutions is recognized based on their ability to admit and support transfer students. 

Trevecca is committed to serving all students that enroll at the University through various programs and initiatives, but all of that begins in the admissions process. As transfer students apply to the University, the admissions staff aims to assist these students as much as possible to provide a smooth transition into life at Trevecca. Many steps are taken to ensure the success of these students from day one including connecting with professors, transcript evaluations, and relationship building. 

The faculty and staff at Trevecca work tirelessly to not only make these students feel welcome on The Hill, but also acknowledge the hard work that took place at the students’ previous institutions. Being named to the Transfer Honor Roll validates the work of the transfer students along with the work of the faculty and staff at Trevecca. 

Transfer admissions counselor, Emily Waddell explained, “having professors willing to reach out to students and get to know them before they even step foot on campus makes Trevecca not only a welcoming place but a place that is committed to the success of all students.” 

The awarding of this honor is based on the profile built within PTKConnect, an online service used by Phi Theta Kappa to help students find a college or university that will fit their needs.
