UT Martin and Dyersburg State Community College sign dual admission partnership agreement

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

A dual partnership agreement has been signed between The University of Tennessee at Martin and Dyersburg State Community College that will provide a "seamless and guaranteed transition from a DSCC associate degree program to a UT bachelor's degree program by providing one curriculum plan for earning both degrees."

Students who can take advantage of the new agreement are one at DSCC who meet current admission criteria at UT Martin and major in an eligible Tennessee Transfer Pathway baccalaureate program.

"This is a benefit to both institutions because it provides a seamless transition for the accomplishment of a four-year degree," said Dr. Robert Smith, UT Martin interim chancellor. "We know that 96 percent of all the good jobs that have occurred since the recession of 2008-2009 have required a four-year degree, so having a good start at Dyersburg State Community College and then transitioning to a high-quality academic program at UT Martin is a great benefit to the student."

Eligible students will be contacted by the UT Martin Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

They may also complete an application for dual admission, available through both school's websites. 

UT Martin plans to create similar agreements with other community colleges in the future.
