St. Cloud State University is nationally recognized as a transfer-friendly institution for a fourth year in a row.
SCSU has been named to Phi Theta Kappa‘s 2023 Transfer Honor Roll for excellence in the development and support of dynamic and innovative pathways for community college transfer students.
SCSU is the only Minnesota State System institution, the only public institution in Minnesota, and one of just 208 colleges and universities nationwide to receive this honor. Showing a track record of excellence, SCSU earned the Transfer Honor Roll in 2020, 2021, and 2022.
Phi Theta Kappa’s Transfer Honor Roll is determined by 40 key metrics related to the support and success of transfer students, including college cost and financial aid, campus life for transfer, admission practices, and bachelor’s degree completion.
The Transfer Honor Roll is based on analysis from the National Student Clearinghouse and on data submitted through the four-year institution’s profile on PTK Connect, which is Phi Theta Kappa’s online tool designed to help students find their best-fit colleges and career pathways. The Honor Roll is chosen from among the top 25 percent highest-rated colleges.
