Important Information Regarding Tennessee Transfer Pathways.
A joint decision has been made by the UT* system and the Tennessee Board of Regents to change the name of "Universal Transfer Path" to "Tennessee Transfer Path" (TTP). At the quarterly meeting of the TBR President's Council, the presidents voted to approve the final group of Tennessee Transfer Pathways - TTPs (originally referred to as Universal Transfer Pathways - UTPs). This action by the presidents completes the process of developing paths for seamless transfer of community-college curricula to university majors as mandated in the Complete College Tennessee Act.
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 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.
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.
*Admission to UT, Knoxville is competitive. For UTK, the Pathways do not guarantee admission.
