Texas Wesleyan is getting national attention for its commitment to transfer looking to take their education to the next level.

Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society named TXWES to its 2020 Transfer Honor Roll, which recognizes excellence in developing pathways designed 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. “They [four-year schools on the Honor Roll] are the best at providing a supportive and smooth transition from community college—equating to increased rates of bachelor’s degree attainment for transfer students.”

Texas Wesleyan recently joined forces with Tarrant County College to form the TCC to TXWES Pathway, allowing TCC students to pursue their associate’s degree and automatically transfer to TXWES, with the full support and guidance of TXWES counselors along the way.

“At Texas Wesleyan, we are firm believers in the impact that a bachelor’s degree can have on a student’s career and life,” Djuana Young, associate vice president for enrollment, said. “The TCC to TXWES Pathway is just one example of how we are making our top-tier education more accessible to transfer students. We’ve already had 196 students sign up. We are pleased with that success and look forward to having more transfer students join the RAMily.”
