Double Your Accomplishment through Dual Admissions

The Dual Admission Program between the Tennessee state community colleges and Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) offers a structured, guaranteed pathway for progressing from an associate’s degree directly to a bachelor’s degree. Students get personal contact with advisors at both institutions during the program to aid them in developing their coursework for their degree program. The Dual Admissions programs are currently offered to students attending Chattanooga State Community College, Columbia State Community College, Dyersburg State Community College, Jackson State Community College, Nashville State Community College, Motlow State Community College, Roane State Community College, and Northeast State Community College.

MTSU takes pride in developing and supporting programs and services that demonstrate our commitment to helping students achieve their academic and personal goals," said MTSU President Sidney A. McPhee.

Advantages for Students

  1. Students are guaranteed acceptance to MTSU rather than to a particular college or major. Admission to a major requires following the requirements designated by that major.
  2. Students can save money by enrolling for their first two years at a community college with lower tuition and fees than four-year institutions.
  3. Students will become familiar with the MTSU staff and academic advisors, which should facilitate the transition process.
  4. Students will be able to view their entire degree plan at the onset of their college career.
  5. Students will receive academic advising from both institutions including early advisement from MTSU.
  6. Students will be able to register during the priority registration time period at MTSU during the semester of graduation from the community college.

Eligibility

A student must meet the following conditions to be eligible:

  1. Plan to pursue a bachelor's degree
  2. Meet current criteria for dual admission
  3. Be a current or transfer student who has earned 29 or less college-level semester hours and has a 2.0 or higher cumulative GPA
  4. Enter a community college under the 2004 or later catalog

Students' Responsibilities

Students who fulfill the requirements of the Dual Admissions Program (DAP) are guaranteed acceptance to MTSU.

  1. Students must apply and be admitted to the community college.
  2. Students must complete an application for Dual Admission and a non-binding Intent-to-Participate form with the community college’s admissions office.
  3. Students must earn an A.S., A.A., or A.S.T.* degree.
  4. Students must maintain a 2.0 or higher cumulative GPA to be in good standing in the Dual Admission Program.
  5. All required high school courses must be completed prior to transition to MTSU.
  6. Any courses required for the major not completed at the community college must be completed at MTSU to progress into the major.
  7. Students must complete community college’s Intent-to-Graduate form.
  8. Students who attend another institution between the time they graduate from the community college and enroll at MTSU must re-apply to MTSU as a transfer student.
  9. Students must re-apply to the Dual Admission Program if there is a break of more than a year in their attendance at the community college.
  10. Students must complete financial aid paperwork for MTSU prior to enrolling at MTSU.

*Students completing the A.S.T must have a 2.75 GPA in order to graduate with an A.S.T. degree.

Institution's Responsibilities

  1. The community college will provide MTSU with a copy of the Dual Admission Program (DAP) application, community college transcript, and high school transcript.
  2. The community college and MTSU will track Dual Admission students in their student information systems.
  3. The community college and MTSU will assign each student to an advisor from each campus.
  4. Each institution will develop a web site specifically for the Dual Admission Program.
  5. At the end of each semester the community college will provide MTSU a transcript for each participant in the DAP, and the community college work will be posted as transfer credit in the MTSU student information system.
  6. The community college will accept any appropriate MTSU credit taken by the student towards the associate degree.

How to get Started

  1. Meet with your community college representative to sign the non-binding Intent to Participate form.
  2. Complete the Dual Admissions Application and pay the $25 application fee.
