Bluffton University recognized for transfer friendliness

Bluffton University was recently named to the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society’s 2022 Transfer Honor Roll in recognition of the dynamic pathways the university has created to support transfer students.

Bluffton is one of the 171 colleges and universities selected for the honor. Colleges were named based on PTK’s “Transfer Friendliness” rating.

“This award is so important because it is based on what students tell us they need from their transfer experience,” says Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner, president and CEO of Phi Theta Kappa. “We are honored to recognize the colleges and universities working exceptionally hard to create stronger pathways to bachelor’s degree completion for all students.”

At Bluffton, a dedicated admissions transfer coordinator works with each student individually throughout the application process. To be considered for admission, transfer students typically need 12 transferable credit hours and a minimum of a 2.0 GPA.

“Bluffton welcomes transfer students from all over the country, and they are a valuable part of our campus community,” said Robin Bowlus, vice president of advancement and enrollment management. “It is our goal at Bluffton to provide a personalized and seamless experience for all transfer students from start to finish whether they have an associate degree or just one semester of coursework.”
