‘MTSU Promise Tour’ embraces community colleges

Middle Tennessee State University  is continuing its “MTSU Promise Tour” to recruit potential transfer students with upcoming visits to Volunteer State and other community colleges across Tennessee.

Following trips earlier this week to Motlow State’s main campus in Lynchburg and to its Smyrna campus, MTSU recruiters will travel to Gallatin, Tennessee, Thursday, Jan. 24, to meet with prospective students at Vol State from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

MTSU Promise Tour continues Jan. 24 at Vol State Community College in Gallatin.

The MTSU Promise is the university’s commitment to make the transfer process as smooth as possible for transfer students and, in some cases, signing special agreements with the community colleges to ensure clear pathways.

University recruiters and other staff have been visiting community colleges across the state to recruit students who will be graduating with associate degrees and want to continue their higher education at MTSU.

At the stops, MTSU staff can help students:

• Apply for admission to MTSU at www.mtsu.edu/applynow.
• Learn more about the Tennessee Transfer Pathways and other programs to help students transfer successfully.
• Find out about scholarship opportunities..
• Get an MTSU ID card if students are already admitted.
