TSU and Vol State Announce Dual Admissions Agreement

Submitted on February 15, 2011 at 2:01 PM

Tennessee State University and Volunteer State Community College have announced a new dual admissions agreement, which will provide students with an easy transfer process, guaranteed acceptance to TSU, and clear course plan for degrees at both schools.

"This type of partnership is important for students. The dual admissions agreement will allow them to save money in pursuit of a baccalaureate degree and provide extra advising to make the college transfer process easier," said Vol State President, Dr. Warren Nichols.

The agreement was signed under former TSU President Dr. Melvin N. Johnson. "We have many Volunteer State students attend our institution each year," said Johnson. "This program will give students an extra level of support to help them to be even more successful in their college career."

Under the agreement, students would enroll at Vol State and receive not only academic advising from both institutions, but also a detailed course plan. Once the student receives the Vol State degree, that class credit, if part of the detailed course plan, will transfer over to TSU. Students will also be able to register during the priority early registration period at TSU the semester of their graduation from Vol State. Students will need to retain a 2.5 grade point average to stay in the program.

For more information about the TSU dual admissions program contact the Vol State Office of Admissions at 615-230-3688 or the TSU representative D. Lynette Perry 615-963-7376.
