Chattanooga State Community College and Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) have announced an agreement that provides direct transfer opportunities between the two institutions. Through the partnership, SNHU guarantees transferability of all eligible credits earned in the following Chattanooga State associate degree programs to the corresponding SNHU bachelor’s degree:

  • Chattanooga State Community College General Education Core
  • Chattanooga State Community College Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science to SNHU Bachelor of Arts in General Studies  
  • Chattanooga State Community College Associate of Applied Science in Allied Health to SNHU Health Sciences

As Southern New Hampshire University is a regionally-accredited institution via the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, all academic coursework in which students earn a grade of “C minus” or higher is fully transferable based on course equivalents. SNHU will accept up to 90 transfer credits from Chattanooga State toward a bachelor’s degree.

Based on the agreement, eligible Chattanooga State Community College graduates, employees and immediate family members of employees (spouse, domestic partners, children, siblings, and parents) will receive a ten percent tuition reduction for SNHU’s online programs, to commence with the official signing. Additionally, the agreement allows for a waiver of the application fee to SNHU. Programs offered at military tuition assistance levels are not subject to the reduction.

“Community college graduates often look for opportunities to continue their education by transferring credits to a bachelor’s degree program,” said William Hartglass, vice president of strategic partnerships, SNHU. “Partnerships, like this one with Chattanooga State Community College, make it easy by creating a direct pathway from an associate degree to a bachelor’s degree. We are always eager to work with community colleges that are looking to help students find ways to continue their education to achieve their personal and professional goals. This gives us the opportunity to share our resources and further our commitment to students.”

I am so pleased to sign this articulation agreement today with Southern New Hampshire University. This agreement will provide our graduates with more options for completion of a bachelor’s degree with SNHU. I am so grateful to SNHU for partnering with Chattanooga State,” said Dr. Rebecca Ashford, president, Chattanooga State Community College.”
