The presidents of Middle Tennessee State University and Roane State Community College signed agreements on Sept. 26 that will ease the transition for students seeking to transfer from the college to the university in Murfreesboro.
Sidney A. McPhee of MTSU and Gary Goff of Roane State authorized three agreements that create dual admissions, concurrent enrollment, and reverse transfer options between the college and the university. The signing took place at the Knoxville Museum of Art during MTSU’s “True Blue Tour,” a six-city admissions caravan of deans, administrators, and counselors, a press release said.
“We welcome this opportunity to strengthen our already strong ties with Roane State,” McPhee said. “MTSU is the No. 1 destination of transfer students in Tennessee and this agreement makes it even easier for Roane State students to attend our university.”
“Roane State is excited to sign these three agreements with MTSU. The agreements will provide greater opportunities for our students,” Goff said. “We are proud to partner with Middle Tennessee State University.”
