Students at Cleveland State Community College can now choose from 29 approved associate degrees with an accompanying transfer pathway, and they are guaranteed to enter any Tennessee Board of Regent or University of Tennessee system institution as a junior.
The TBR and UT systems have come together to develop the Tennessee Transfer Pathway Guarantee. If followed exactly as it is laid out, the pathway guarantees admission, as a junior, to all public universities in the state, provided participants also meet the specific program requirements.
Cleveland State also has many transfer arrangements with private universities throughout the state in specific programs.
“Students have a real advantage by following a Tennessee Transfer Pathway program of study,” stated Dr. Denise King, vice president for Academic Affairs. “By completing the specified program requirements laid out for the first two years of study at the community college, graduating students transfer with junior status. This puts them right into upper level studies at their baccalaureate institution. No guessing if something will transfer, no negotiation for credit. It’s simple, and it works.”
