TSU 2+2 Bachelors Degree Program

Vol State and Tennessee State University (TSU) have collaborated to provide Vol State Associate’s Degree students the opportunity to complete the TSU Criminal Justice Bachelor's Degree directly from the Vol State campus in Gallatin, TN rather than on the TSU campus in Nashville, TN. Upon completion of the Associate of Science Degree with a Criminal Justice emphasis through Vol State, students “transfer” to TSU for completion of the B.S. Degree.

Quality Education and Student Advisement

By offering all courses through Vol State, students can maintain their local residences, continue to work, and avoid the anxiety and hassle of travel or relocation. TSU provides the same high value, affordable, educational experience and main campus quality instruction in traditional classroom, online, and hybrid formats. In addition, students receive individual assistance and advisement via a TSU Off-Campus Program Coordinator and Off-Campus Counselor, who strive to ensure the students enjoy all of the benefits of the TSU Criminal Justice Program, but from a distance.
