Associate of Arts and Associate of Science Degree Tennessee Transfer Pathways

Tennessee Transfer Pathways (TTPs) help students transfer to a Tennessee public university to complete their baccalaureate degree. Completing all the courses listed on a particular Tennessee Transfer Pathway will earn an A.A. or A.S. degree at Nashville State and all courses are guaranteed to count toward that university major.

The prescribed curriculum for each Transfer Pathway must be followed exactly to ensure all hours transfer. Talk to an advisor, see the NSCC Catalog, and visit for more TTP information. View TTP video

In planning the courses to be taken at Nashville State, students first choose the four-year university that they plan to attend, consult the catalog of the transfer university for specific degree requirements, and meet with their Nashville State advisor to match up the courses offered at Nashville State with the courses required at their future four-year university.
