Tennessee Transfer Pathways (TTPs) are advising tools designed to help community college students plan for transferring to a Tennessee public university or select regionally accredited, non-profit, Tennessee private colleges and universities to complete their baccalaureate degree. The TTPs also constitute an agreement between community colleges and four-year colleges/universities confirming that community college courses meet major preparation requirements.
How do the Pathways work?
A student who completes all the courses listed on a particular Transfer Pathway will earn an A.A. or A.S. degree at the community college. When 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.
As soon as possible, meet with an academic advisor at your community college to ensure that you are following the correct pathway. After you complete your pathway, apply to TSU by clicking here. Once we receive your transcript we will code you as a Tennessee Transfer Pathway student. Upon transfer, community college students must complete all the upper-division course requirements. Always check the university catalog.
