Lake Forest College makes Phi Theta Kappa transfer-student honor roll

For the fourth consecutive year, Phi Theta Kappa has recognized Lake Forest College for excellence in creating successful pathways for community-college transfer students.

The international honor society for community-college students who excel academically recently recognized 122 colleges and universities, including Lake Forest College, on its “2020 Transfer Honor Roll.” Institutions were selected based on engagement, collaboration, impact, and achievements related to the transfer of community college students to four-year colleges and universities.

“We are thrilled to be recognized for bringing some of the best community-college grads to continue their education on our campus,” said Lake Forest College Director of Transfer Admissions Melissa Naughton. “These students come from some of the most academically rigorous community colleges in the country and are fantastic additions to our campus community.”

During the 2019–2020 school year, Lake Forest College awarded the Phi Theta Kappa scholarship to 50 transfer students from community colleges, including College of Lake County, Oakton Community College, College of DuPage, McHenry County College, and William Rainey Harper College, among others in Chicagoland and around the country.

Each year, Lake Forest College offers either a $25,000 or $30,000 scholarship to admitted transfer students who hold current membership in Phi Theta Kappa.
