Tennessee Transfer Pathways

Tennessee Transfer Pathway

Choose any of the approved Cleveland State Associate degrees with a transfer pathway and you are guaranteed that all of your credits will be accepted at the college/university and the courses will count toward completion of the particular major. This guarantee applies to all of Tennessee’s public universities and many private colleges/universities. If you transfer to another Tennessee community college, all courses will transfer. When you transfer to a Tennessee public or private college/university, the transcript will certify that the pathway has been followed. Cleveland State also has many transfer arrangements with private universities throughout the state in specific programs.

Check with your advisor to ensure you are on the right path. For more information about any of our transfer programs, contact your advisor, email advising@clevelandstatecc.edu, or visit our Transfer and Articulation page at https://www.clevelandstatecc.edu/for-students/transfer-agreements/.
