August 23, 2021 – King’s College is proud to announce that it is one of 151 colleges and universities to be named to Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society’s (PTK) 2021 Transfer Honor Roll in recognition of the dynamic pathways it has created to support transfer students.

The Transfer Honor Roll, made possible by a $100,000 grant from The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, identifies four-year colleges and universities that have created transfer pathways that lead to excellence and success among community college transfer students. King’s College was selected for this award based on its Transfer Friendliness Rating, which is determined by the Transfer Profile created in PTK Connect, PTK’s online tool that helps students find their best-fit colleges, career pathways, and more.

King’s College is honored to be recognized by PTK for its efforts to make the transfer process smooth and painless for students and their families, and to foster success for transfer students once they become Monarchs. Barry H. Williams, JD, MT, MBA, CPA, Interim Vice President for Enrollment Management and Dean of the William. G. McGowan School of Business commented, “"As a College that values academic excellence and engaged mentorship for our students, the transfer to King's is seamless in acclimating the student into a successful experience, both at the College and beyond."
