Stephens College is one of only 78 colleges nationwide named to Phi Theta Kappa’s 2019 Transfer Honor Roll. The award recognizes excellence and success in community college transfer pathway development among four-year colleges and universities.

“We are honored to be recognized among the top 25% of colleges nationwide for transfer friendliness,” said Vice President of Enrollment Management Brian Sajko. “Stephens has always been committed to helping transfer students achieve their educational goals — as evidenced by our dedicated transfer team and commitment to one-on-one advising.

“This year, three new initiatives furthered that commitment: The Stephens Solution College Affordability Plan, which reduced tuition by $8,250 for all students; the introduction of a more seamless and proactive transfer process with Moberly Area Community College students; and new scholarship opportunities for transfer students.”

“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. “We know community college transfer students perform as well as or better than non-transfer students at four-year colleges. It’s more important than ever before to highlight what these colleges are doing right to promote transfer success and to encourage others to follow suit.”

Phi Theta Kappa is the premier honor society recognizing the academic achievement of students at associate degree-granting colleges and helping them to grow as scholars and leaders. It was first established at Stephens College in Missouri in 1910 as Kappa Phi Omicron. In 1918, the society was renamed Phi Theta Kappa and became nationally organized. The society is made up of more than 3.5 million members and nearly 1,300 chapters in 10 nations. Learn more at
