Phi Theta Kappa has named Concordia College New York to its 2018 Transfer Honor Roll, which identifies the top four-year colleges and universities creating dynamic pathways to support transfer students. Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) is the premier honor society recognizing the academic achievement of students at associate degree-granting colleges and helping them to grow as scholars and leaders. The Society is made up of more than 3.5 million members and nearly 1,300 chapters in nine nations.
Concordia’s winning application for the gold-standard PTK endorsement was evaluated for scholarship and financial aid, admissions outreach, student support services, and student engagement opportunities – all areas in which Concordia College excels.
For example, Concordia has an Articulation Agreement with Westchester Community College which ensures that students will matriculate into Concordia College with junior standing, and be able to enroll in any of Concordia’s programs in Business, Education, Nursing, Psychology and Social Work. Students who transfer from any of the several community colleges with which Concordia works have their admission fast-tracked: admission counselors quickly evaluate and apply existing credits, outline the path to graduation, and ease the transition with personalized support. Concordia College is also proud to offer many transfer-specific scholarships.
John McLoughlin, Concordia’s Senior Director of Enrollment said, “Concordia College New York is proud to have been named to Phi Theta Kappa’s 2018 Transfer Honor Roll. Transfer students come to Concordia with a passion for learning and hunger to succeed, and our student-centered ethos and nurturing environment really serve them well. Concordia shows its commitment to the academic and professional growth of our transfer students by creating pathways from community college to a bachelor’s degree, accepting up to 90 credits in transfer, offering accelerated degree programs that allow students to graduate and enter the workforce as quickly as possible, and making college affordable with generous transfer scholarships.”
