MTSU, Jackson State sign deal to transfer students

JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) -- The presidents of Middle Tennessee State University and Jackson State Community College have signed an agreement that will make it easier for students in Jackson to transfer to the Murfreesboro university.

The agreement that was signed Thursday in Jackson creates dual admissions, concurrent enrollment and reverse transfer options between the two institutions.

MTSU president Sidney McPhee said in a statement that these pacts are a priority for MTSU because they are the top destination of transfer students in Tennessee.

The concurrent enrollment allows students to enroll for classes at both institutions simultaneously and get financial aid for the total number of credits. Students at Jackson State will also be eligible for advising, registration priority and admissions help from MTSU.
