A new Dual Admission Partnership Agreement (DAP) between The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and Chattanooga State Community College will allow students to transfer and earn their four year baccalaureate degree at UTC.
“This is a great opportunity to acclimate Chattanooga State’s future graduates to UTC. We are excited to introduce these students to UTC and provide information about a seamless transfer process. This partnership between our institutions will help to educate more Tennesseans and ensure that more of them complete an Associate and Bachelor’s degree,” said Yancy Freeman, Assistant Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Services at UTC.
Students who meet current admission criteria at both UTC and Chattanooga State are eligible.
“UTC and Chattanooga State have collaborated for years, and the dual admission program is a natural progression in our partnership,” said Chattanooga State President James Catanzaro.
The specialized Dual Admission Partnership will help student’s succeed by easing the transition and admission process to a four year institution.
“This new partnership will simplify the process for transfer students by making sure they have the right courses and setting them up with proper advisement, so that their transfer to UTC is guaranteed,” said UTC Chancellor Roger Brown.
As part of the DAP, students will be in contact with staff from both Chattanooga State and UTC. Students will have access to advisement, financial aid, and other support services.
“Our faculty will be working cooperatively with UTC to connect students to the resources they need to complete their bachelor’s degree at UTC, potentially saving them time and money. Best of all, the dual admission program will significantly improve the likelihood that students will graduate from both institutions,” said Chattanooga State Provost Fannie Hewlett.
Students will also be able to use the UTC library, academic and computer labs, and attend UTC sporting events.
