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

With a full-time job, the Humphreys Co. location and the affordable tuition make it convenient to go to college. I probably couldn’t go, if it were more expensive or farther away.
