WSCC, MTSU Announce Agreements
Posted October 21, 2015

Walters State Community College and Middle Tennessee State University announced agreements Tuesday (Oct. 20) to make it easier for community college students to transfer and successfully earn an advanced degree at the university.

MTSU President Sidney A. McPhee and Walters State President Wade McCamey authorized agreements creating dual admissions and reverse transfer options between WSCC — with four East Tennessee campuses — and MTSU, located in Murfreesboro.

The agreement occurred at the The Foundry on the Fair Site, where the fourth leg of MTSU’s nine-city True Blue Tour was held later featuring a reception for prospective students and their guests and luncheon for area high school counselors and community college staff.

The agreement helps establish programs to promote successful experiences for students wanting to complete a degree. Walters State students can now interact with MTSU advisers and have access to faculty and programs within their proposed majors. Students completing an associate degree will be granted access to register early for university classes.

“This agreement offers our students the chance to get on a guaranteed track to earn a bachelor’s degree while still at Walters State,” said McCamey.

“We are eager to work with MTSU to make the transition process as easy as possible for our students,” he added.

“MTSU and Walters State strive for our students to succeed and this partnership provides another element to enable more Tennessee residents to graduate from college, fully supporting the state’s objective to produce a more educated workforce,” McPhee said. “This agreement allows for an easier transition from Walters State’s campuses to our campus in Murfreesboro.”
