Transfer Agreement Degrees ("Articulations")

Columbia State has forged relationships with universities and colleges where a Bachelor's degree can be started at Columbia State, and finished at the participating university. This assures a seamless transfer and prevents wasted credit hours.

Each institution has a local Transfer Officer that handles the transfer agreement, in conjunction with the University Center at Columbia State.

Transfer Guides
A transfer guide outlines which courses to take at Columbia State to complete required hours for the Associate degree. After completing all the courses delineated in the transfer guide you will transfer to a four-year institution as a junior in your major without loss of credits. 

Transfer Pathway -  Students entering a community college in Tennessee who select a major with a transfer pathway, complete required courses to earn an associate's degree and then can transfer seamlessly as a junior to a four-year Tennessee public university. All earned credit hours will apply toward a bachelor's degree in the same discipline.

Additional Transfer Guides currently in place are:
