LIM College Named to Phi Theta Kappa’s “Transfer Honor Roll”
Recognized as one of the nation’s top colleges and universities supporting community college transfer students 

LIM College has been selected by Phi Theta Kappa as one of 40 top colleges and universities nationwide that are creating dynamic pathways to support students transferring from community colleges. Located in New York City, LIM College is exclusively focused on the study of business and fashion.

Phi Theta Kappa is the oldest, largest and most prestigious honor society recognizing students pursuing two-year degrees. It is made up of more than 3 million members and nearly 1,300 chapters in nine nations. Phi Theta Kappa’s inaugural Excellence in Community College Transfer Honor Roll identifies the top four-year colleges and universities offering exemplary programs, initiatives and benefits for community college transfers.

Institutions named to the list were judged based 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.

One of the ways LIM provides unique support for transfer students is through an event called “The Real Transfers of LIM.” Held each semester, it brings together incoming, current and alumni transfer students to network and share personal experiences, with an emphasis on career-building opportunities.

Said LIM College President Elizabeth S. Marcuse, “We are honored to be named to Phi Theta Kappa’s first Transfer Honor Roll. Transfer students make up a sizable portion of LIM College’s student body. Our goal is to make their transition to our community seamless, and to provide these students with the most supportive environment possible for pursuing an education in the business of fashion.”

Phi Theta Kappa’s Director of Scholarship Operations, Christin Grissom, said the new recognition program reflects the growing importance of transfer in helping the U.S. achieve its college completion goals, and will promote further study and sharing of best practices.

“With this designation, we hope to connect community college students with institutions who value their unique transfer experience and prioritize their success,” noted Grissom.
