We are proud to announce that Walters State students who want to complete a bachelor's degree now have a guarantee that their credits will transfer to a public university in Tennessee if they choose any one of 50 different majors offering transfer pathways.
The TBR, in cooperation with the UT system, is announcing the creation of 50 universal transfer pathways ensuring students' ability to make timely and cost-effective transitions from community colleges in Tennessee to our universities.
Students entering a community college in Tennessee who select one of 50 majors with accompanying transfer pathways, complete required courses and earn an associate's degree can transition seamlessly as a junior to a Tennessee public university. Some specific academic programs, such as Nursing where class sizes are limited, may have competitive admissions based on enrollment, but students will be advised about any requirements when they first enroll in the program.
All earned credit hours will apply toward a bachelor's degree in the same discipline. The pathways also guarantee admission to all public universities in the state, except for UT Knoxville, where competitive admission standards will still apply.
