In a three-week stretch, Middle Tennessee State University’s transfer admissions team will meet with prospective students at nine community colleges across Tennessee.

It’s the annual MTSU Promise Tour to reach out to the prospective transfer students — from Knoxville to Jackson and from Dyersburg to Chattanooga — in time for them to meet the Feb. 15 deadline for the guaranteed transfer scholarship — $3,000 per year for qualifiers.

At nine of the colleges, the MTSU Promise is one of the university’s commitments to making the transfer process as smooth as possible and, in some cases, signing special agreements with the community colleges to ensure clear pathways. MTSU and Nashville State Community College have a “True Blue Pathway” agreement.

The MTSU Promise Tour kicks off Tuesday, Jan. 25, in Smyrna at Motlow State Community College, the first of three scheduled visits a week for three weeks to answer questions and discuss the transfer process for applications, scholarship opportunities, academic programs and more. Application fees will be waived during the Promise Tour visit for new transfer applicants for Summer 2022 and Fall ’22.

Other upcoming events include:

• Jan. 26 — Volunteer State in Gallatin.

• Jan. 27 — Columbia State (Columbia campus).

• Feb. 1 — Pellissippi State (Hardin Valley campus)

• Feb. 2 — Cleveland State.

• Feb. 3 — Chattanooga State.

• Feb. 8 — Nashville State (White Bridge Road campus).

• Feb. 9 — Jackson State.

• Feb. 10 — Dyersburg State.

All of the event times will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. local time.

“Our goal is to meet the students where they are and help assist the transition from their community college to MTSU after they have completed their associate degrees,” said Lindsey Powers Joyner, transfer enrollment coordinator, who partners with Nashville State and the West Tennessee community colleges.

“Community colleges in our state do a wonderful job preparing students for the next level, whether it is a career or classroom at a four year university,” Powers Joyner added. “We want to make sure students know what MTSU has to offer and how we can help them reach their goals.”

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.

• Obtain an MTSU ID Card if students are already admitted.

Throughout the remainder of the spring semester, MTSU transfer enrollment coordinators working with all 13 of Tennessee’s community colleges to assist students in navigating the enrollment process, Powers Joyner said.

If any students, parents or family members have any questions about transferring to MTSU, they can email them to transfer@mtsu.edu.

MTSU has more than 300 combined undergraduate and graduate programs.
