Cleveland State & Tennessee Tech Sign Dual Admissions Agreement

Monday, December 12, 2011

Cleveland State Community College and Tennessee Tech University recently finalized their dual admissions partnership. The dual admission program is designed for students who plan to earn a transfer degree from Cleveland State and a bachelor’s degree from TTU.

Students will be able to save money, have a guaranteed acceptance to TTU if they meet admission standards, receive early advisement from TTU while enrolled at CSCC and have access to libraries, academic and computing labs at both institutions.

“This Dual Admission Program is just another milestone in our continuing efforts to foster students’ academic success by guaranteeing an easy transition from Cleveland State’s associate degree to TTU’s bachelor’s degree program,” said Dr. Carl Hite, CSCC president.

CSCC students who fulfill the requirements for dual admission are guaranteed acceptance to TTU with full junior standing and will also enjoy other advantages such as having direct contact with both CSCC and TTU faculty and staff throughout their tenure in the program and being able to participate in opportunities for educational enrichment at TTU.

Students who are eligible for this program include those who meet current admission criteria at both Cleveland State and TTU, those who plan to attend CSCC or who transfer to CSCC with no more than 30 college-level semester hours, students currently enrolled at CSCC who have less than 30 transferable hours and a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 and those who intend to major in one of the articulated baccalaureate programs at TTU.

Once enrolled in the dual-admission program, a student must maintain a 2.0 cumulative GPA. Additionally, to transfer to TTU, a student must have earned an A.S., A.A. or A.S.T. degree.

"This dual admission agreement moves us along in our efforts to meet the letter and spirit of the Complete College Tennessee Act of 2010," said Dr. Jerry Faulkner, vice president for Academic Affairs at Cleveland State Community College. “The agreement will facilitate the transfer of students from Cleveland State to Tennessee Tech. Students can begin to envision themselves as TTU students even before leaving Cleveland.”
