Tennessee Transfer Pathways (TTP) Associate Degrees

A student who completes all the courses listed for the selected major of a Transfer Pathway will be able to earn an A.A. or A.S. degree from the community college. Whenever the student transfers to a Tennessee public or private college/university, the transcript will certify that the pathway has been followed. The student is guaranteed that all the community college courses taken will be accepted at the college/university and the courses will count toward completion of the particular major. If a community college student transfers to another Tennessee community college, he or she is guaranteed that all courses transfer.

Important Note: Admission to UT Knoxville is competitive. For UTK, the Pathways do not guarantee admission. Provided that all other admission criteria are met, individual TICUA institutions may require courses specific to their mission that do not result in additional time spent toward degree completion.
