Walsh Receives Honor for Transfer Pathways and Student Support

TROY, Mich., March 27, 2020 — Walsh was one of three schools in Michigan and 122 institutions across the United States to be named to the 2020 Transfer Honor Roll by Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society (PTK). The award recognizes colleges and universities committed to providing the pathways, resources and support community college transfer students need to be successful.

Recipients were selected based on the Transfer Friendliness Rating determined by each school’s Transfer Profile created in PTK Connect, an online tool designed to help students find relevant school data and make informed transfer decisions. Schools with ratings in the top 25 percent are named to the Transfer Honor Roll.

PTK recognizes the academic achievement of students at associate degree-granting colleges and is made up of more than 3.5 million members and nearly 1,300 chapters in 11 nations.

Walsh has partnered with other schools for more than 50 years, first offering courses for students who had completed two years at community college or a four-year institution in 1968. Today, Walsh accepts up to 91 transfer credits and has built a reputation for providing a seamless and affordable transfer process.

“Walsh is committed to providing an efficient and supportive transfer process from community colleges and four-year institutions,” said Patti Swanson, Vice President, Chief Marketing and Enrollment Officer. “We value our transfer partner relationships and are proud to receive this recognition.”
