In three weeks, Middle Tennessee State University Transfer Admissions the team will meet potential students at nine community colleges across Tennessee.
It’s the annual MTSU Promise Tour to reach out to future transfer students – from Knoxville at jackson and of Dyersbourg at Chattanooga — in time for them to meet the February 15 deadline for the guaranteed transfer scholarship — $3,000 per year for qualified workers.
In nine of the colleges, the MTSU Promise is one of the university’s commitments to make the transfer process as smooth as possible and, in some cases, to sign special agreements with community colleges to ensure clear pathways. MTSU and Nashville State Community College have a “True Blue Path » agreement.
The MTSU Promise Tour kicks off Tuesday, January 25, to Smyrna to Motlow State Community College, the first of three scheduled visits per week for three weeks to answer questions and discuss the application transfer process, scholarship opportunities, academic programs and more. The application fee will be waived when visiting the Promise Tour for new transfer applicants for Summer 2022 and Fall 22.

January 26 — Voluntary state at Gallatin.
- January 27 – State of Columbia (Columbia campus).
- February 1 – Pellissippi State (Hardin Valley Campus)
- February 2 – Cleveland State.
- February 3 – Chattanooga State.

All event times will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. local time.
“Our goal is to meet students where they are and help transition from their community college to MTSU after they graduate with associate degrees,” said Lindsey PowersJoyner, transfer enrollment coordinator, who oversees Nashville State and West Tennessee community colleges.
“Our state’s community colleges do a tremendous job preparing students for the next level, whether it’s a career or a 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 achieve their goals.”
At stops, MTSU staff can help students:
- Apply for admission to MTSU atwww.mtsu.edu/applynow.
- Learn more about theTennessee Transfer Lanes and other programs to help students transfer successfully.
- Obtain an MTSU ID card if students are already admitted.
During the remainder of the spring semester, MTSU transfer enrollment coordinators work with Tennessee’s 13 community colleges to help students navigate the enrollment process, Powers Joyner said.
If any students, parents, or family members have questions about transferring to MTSU, they can email them to [email protected].
