The University of Tampa has been named to Phi Theta Kappa’s 2017 Transfer Honor Roll, which identifies the top four-year colleges and universities that create dynamic pathways to support community college transfer.
UT is one of only 65 institutions nationwide selected to receive this honor. The selection is based on engagement, collaboration, impact and achievements related to the transfer of community college students as well as partnerships, support, admissions outreach, scholarships/financial aid, student engagement opportunities and institutional priorities.

It’s mission is to recognize and encourage the academic achievement of two-year college students while providing opportunities for individual growth and development through participation in honors, leadership, service and fellowship programming.
