Valpo Recognized Among Most Transfer-Friendly Schools for Fifth Year Running

Students on campus

Valparaiso University is dedicated to creating transfer friendly pathways so that more students can experience the quality education the University provides. That’s why we’re thrilled that Valpo has been named to the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society Transfer Honor Roll for the fifth consecutive year, recognizing the University’s excellence in the development and support of dynamic and innovative transfer pathways for community college transfer students. 

Being named to the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Roll shows that Valpo is one of the most transfer-friendly schools in the nation, as determined by its admission practice, cost of attendance, campus life, and recruitment practices. 

“Valparaiso University is honored to be named once again to the Phi Theta Kappa Transfer Honor Roll,” Associate Director of Transfer Admission Melissa Rogers M.E.d. said. “Transfer students are valuable members of our campus community because they bring diverse experiences and meaningful perspectives to Valpo. This honor recognizes the support and transfer-friendly pathways that Valparaiso University provides to community college transfer students.”

Students transfer from both two-year and four-year institutions, including traditional college-age students, non-traditional and military students. Each transfer student receives attention and care from the transfer admission team and valuable information from their future academic advisor as a prospective student. 

Creating new pathways to higher education is one of the important goals of the five-year Uplift Valpo strategic plan. This honor recognizes the work the University has already done in giving attention and care to transfer students from two-year and four-year institutions, non-traditional students, and military students.
