A student who completes all the courses listed for the selected major of a Transfer Pathway will be able to earn an A.A. or A.S. degree from the community college. Whenever the student transfers to a Tennessee public or private college/university, the transcript will certify that the pathway has been followed. The student is guaranteed that all the community college courses taken will be accepted at the college/university and the courses will count toward completion of the particular major. If a community college student transfers to another Tennessee community college, he or she is guaranteed that all courses transfer. Find out more about the TTPs.
If a student decides to transfer to a four-year university before completing all of the associate degree requirements, he/she may be eligible to take advantage of the Tennessee Reverse Transfer program and apply the courses taken from the university to earn the associate degree when the requirements are met. Find out more about the Tennessee Reverse Transfer.
