Stockton is one of 208 colleges and universities recognized for the “dynamic pathways they have created to support community college transfer students.” The honor roll is determined by 40 key metrics related to the support and success of transfer students, including college cost and financial aid, campus life for transfer, admission practices and bachelor’s degree completion.

“Stockton is proud to be recognized for the second consecutive year by Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society as a transfer-friendly institution, which we pride ourselves on,” said Robert Heinrich, Stockton’s vice president for Enrollment Management. “We look forward to continuing to provide pathways for students to complete their college degree at Stockton.”

The honor roll is chosen from among the top 25% highest-rated colleges who have submitted data to PTK Connect, the honor society’s online tool to help students find a college and career.

“The goal of most students attending community college is a bachelor's degree, but few do because of financial barriers and the complexities of the transfer process,” said Lynn Tincher-Ladner, president and CEO of Phi Theta Kappa. “We are proud to recognize exceptional colleges and universities that go above and beyond to create accessible pathways to bachelor’s degree completion for community college transfer students.”

Almost 40% of Stockton students are transfers, with the majority coming in from community colleges. Stockton accepts on average 99% of credits transferred from another college.
