University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Chancellor Steven Angle and Chattanooga State Community College President Flora Tydings signed a Dual Admissions Agreement between the two institutions on Wednesday, August 12, 2015.
The Dual Admission Agreement allows students to apply for admission simultaneously at both campuses while pursuing an associate’s degree at Chattanooga State. Participants will benefit from guaranteed admission to UTC upon earning an associate’s degree from Chattanooga State. Students can save money by enrolling in their first two years at lower community college tuition and fees.
“How do we focus on our students? That’s something that UTC shares with Chattanooga State, doing the very best job that we can with our students. This agreement will provide a very clear path, a very welcoming path, to Chattanooga State students to an affordable four-year degree,” said Angle.
“It is the logical thing to do for our students, for our community, and for this state. Students need to have options, and they need to be able to get the job of their dreams when they graduate from us,” added Tydings.
Both campuses will provide students with a more personalized level of advising because participants’ entire degree path will be available at the onset of their college careers.
Participants in the Dual Admissions program will receive a UTC student ID card and can take advantage of some campus services as well as attend UTC events for a nominal fee.
