Becker recognized for helping transfer students succeed
Published on: March 30, 2020
Becker College has been named to Phi Theta Kappa’s 2020 Transfer Honor Roll, for its efforts to help transfer students succeed. The award recognizes excellence in the development of transfer pathways.
“We are proud and excited to receive this recognition once again this year—as it continues to validate the work that our team is doing to prioritize transfer student access, entry and enrollment to Becker College,” said Dean of Admissions Danielle O’Connell. “Members of the campus community, including staff on the Admissions team, have been tirelessly advocating for transfer students as they transition to Becker, and working collaboratively to make the experience as smooth and successful as possible.”
The Phi Theta Kappa honor is awarded to the top 25 percent of colleges who earned the organization’s highest Transfer Friendliness Ratings.
“The Transfer Honor Roll reflects the growing importance of recognizing and responding to the needs of transfer students,” Phi Theta Kappa President and CEO Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner said. “This award is given to four-year colleges and universities with proven outcomes for transfer success. They are the best at providing a supportive and smooth transition from community college — equating to increased rates of bachelor’s degree attainment for transfer students.”
At Becker College, the goal for transfer students is to help them save time and money by bringing in as many credits as possible and applying those credits to a degree program.
Becker’s transfer counselors are dedicated to working with students to make the process as seamless and easy as possible. That includes helping with the application process, the transfer of credits, and explaining how those credits will apply to a program, as well as sharing scholarship and financial aid information.
In addition, Becker College is proud to offer transfer scholarships that are both need-based and merit-based.
“We welcome transfer students at any stage,” O’Connell said, “and want them to know that this is a place conscious of and intentional about the unique journey that they are on.”
