MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) – Middle Tennessee State University is providing some guidance to community college students interested in attending its four-year institution.
MTSU President Sidney McPhee recently announced that university administrators, academic counselors and admissions team members will be at seven two-year state institutions from March 17 to April 16 to counsel students seeking guidance about the university’s programs and services.
There will also be workshops to help students who wish to declare dual admissions status.
Agreements signed between MTSU and Tennessee Board of Regents colleges in recent years allow two-year students to enroll as MTSU students while still pursuing an associate degree.
If the students transfer before getting an associate degree, the pacts allow the “reverse transfer” of MTSU credits back to the colleges to earn a two-year credential.
