Transfer Students

Transfer StudentsIf you've been waiting for the right time, you don't have to wait any longer. Regents Online gives you the opportunity to receive a quality education on your own schedule. If you are currently a student and want to supplement your education with online classes or you are looking to become a full-time online student, the Regents Online program can make the difference.

Most institutions require transfer students to have a minimum number of credit hours before admittance is allowed. If you do not meet the minimum number of credit hours for your home campus, you will be required to apply as an entering freshman.

General Transfer Requirements

Admissions for transfer students varies depending on the home campus you choose. The following are general requirements that most institutions use:

  • You must currently be in good standing with the last institution you attended
  • You must not be on academic suspension or probation from the last institution you attended
  • You must meet the minimum GPA requirements for your home campus
  • If required, you must meet all the criteria necessary as an entering freshman

General transfer credits policies for TBR universities can be found here.

No college can promise the transferability of its credits to any other institution without a written Articulation Agreement. Transferability of credit is decided by the receiving institution. It is the student’s responsibility to verify whether an institution will accept transfer credits.

Take the first step to becoming a student by completing the prospective student profile on the admissions steps page. The profile will be sent to your "home campus" selection.  An academic advisor at the "home campus" will require unofficial transcripts for evaluation of transfer credit acceptance.

Guaranteed Transfer Among Tennessee Public and Private Institutions


Tennessee students working toward Associate's degree completion who plan to transfer to a TBR, UT system or participating Tennessee Independent Colleges and Universities Association (TICUA) institution for Bachelor's degree completion, should visit the Tennessee Transfer Pathway site. The site provides transfer pathways by campus and major. The information provided on this site is intended to help students and advisors work together to establish an appropriate pathway. The site does not take the place of an advisor or counselor on your campus.

How do the Pathways work?

A student who completes all the courses listed on a particular Transfer Pathway will earn an A.A. or A.S. degree at the community college. When the student transfers to a Tennessee public or private university, the transcript will certify that the pathway has been followed. The student is guaranteed that all the community college courses taken will be accepted at the university and the courses will count toward completion of the particular major.

If a community college student transfers to another Tennessee community college, all courses will transfer to the receiving institution.

Important Note: Admission to UT, Knoxville is competitive. For UTK, the Pathways do not guarantee admission.
