(BALTIMORE, Md.) Notre Dame of Maryland University was named to the 2022 Transfer Honor Roll as one of the nation’s best colleges or universities in developing strong pathways for transfer students to succeed.

Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, an honor society for associate degree students, selected 171 four-year colleges and universities for this year’s Transfer Honor Roll by evaluating 40 key metrics, including college cost and financial aid, campus life, admission practices, and bachelor’s degree completion. The data used for the analysis came from the National Student Clearinghouse and from the institutions directly for their profiles on PTK Connect, Phi Theta Kappa’s online tool to connect students to information on colleges and careers. The Transfer Honor Roll represents the top 25 percent of colleges and universities in PTK Connect.

“NDMU is committed to providing transfer students with a smooth transition into the University and robust support to graduate on time with a respected degree,” said Scott Briell, senior vice president for enrollment & student services. “NDMU continues to strengthen our partnerships with community colleges and create specialized initiatives to help transfer students realize their higher education goals.”

A co-ed comprehensive university rooted in the Catholic tradition, NDMU makes it easy for students to transfer credits and complete their degree. New transfer students who live in Maryland are automatically eligible to receive NDMU’s Maryland Transfer Grant when they enroll full time in a bachelor's degree program in the Women's College. NDMU also partners with the 14 other members of the Maryland Independent College and University Association to work with Maryland’s community colleges to create a comprehensive transfer consortium and improve transfer pathways to colleges. In addition, NDMU has developed transfer partnerships with colleges and universities around the world and participates in the Maryland Articulation System (ARTSYS), used by community colleges in the state to recommend transfer programs.

“This award is so important because it is based on what students tell us they need from their transfer experience,” said 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.”

Established in 1895, Notre Dame of Maryland University (NDMU) is a private, Catholic institution in Baltimore, Maryland, with the mission to educate leaders to transform the world. Notre Dame has been named one of the best "Regional Universities North" by U.S. News & World Report.
