Tennessee Transfer Pathway

From here to career. Find your pathway!

The Tennessee Transfer Pathway allows you to begin your college studies at a community college like Southwest, then easily transfer those credits to a bachelor’s degree program at any public university and many private universities in Tennessee.

This program was created by the Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) in cooperation with the University of Tennessee (UT) system.

Students at Southwest can choose majors with an accompanying transfer pathway. If you complete the required courses and earn an associate's degree, you can transition seamlessly as a junior to any Tennessee public university.

Some academic programs may have competitive admissions based on enrollment. An example is Nursing where class sizes are limited. 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 pathway also guarantees admission to all public universities in the state, except for UT Knoxville, where competitive admission standards will still apply.

This pathway will provide "academic roadmaps" for students. The program is expected to increase the number of transfer students at campuses across our system, while ensuring students do not waste time or money in the process.
