Carson-Newman, Pellissippi State partner on transfer pathways for students

(Dec. 15, 2016) – Carson-Newman University and Pellissippi State Community College are partnering to ensure transfer pathways are seamless for community college students who go on to earn their four-year degrees.

The partnership specifically targets certain transfer programs, which allow students to earn an associate degree and then transfer those credits to a four-year university. The Carson-Newman partnership will allow seamless transfer for Pellissippi State students earning an Associate of Fine Arts in Music and an Associate of Science in Teaching with a concentration for preschool through grade three, as well as the Tennessee Transfer Pathway degree in Business Administration. Students who earn those degrees from Pellissippi State can then transfer to Carson-Newman to complete bachelor’s degrees in Education, Music and Business.

Additionally, students who earn certain associate degrees from Pellissippi State can transfer to Carson-Newman and enter bachelor’s degree programs in general studies or in Pre-Nursing.

“Partnerships like this one allow community college students to more easily find their way along the path to a higher education,” said L. Anthony Wise Jr., president of Pellissippi State.

“This is a significant partnership between two great academic institutions that will benefit East Tennessee students by providing the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree. It’s a win-win all-around,” said Paul Percy, provost of Carson-Newman.

We are proud to partner with Carson-Newman University to enable our students to successfully complete a bachelor’s degree in these programs,” said Ted Lewis, vice president of Academic Affairs at Pellissippi State.
