Motlow State and U of M Sign Dual Admissions Agreement

For release: August 24, 2012
For press information, contact Curt Guenther, 901-678-2843

The University of Memphis and Motlow State Community College (MSCC) have signed an agreement for a Dual Admissions Program (DAP) between the two campuses.  The community college is located near Lynchburg and Tullahoma in Moore County in southern Middle Tennessee.

The program will be open to MSCC students who have taken no more than 29 credit hours toward their associate’s degree while maintaining a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale.  Immediately upon receiving their degree from Motlow State, they will be eligible to begin classes at the University of Memphis.

The agreement will benefit students by reducing the total cost of their higher education by encouraging them to complete an associate’s degree at a community college first.  It will also allow them to enjoy improved and collaborative academic advising from both schools and to make a smoother transition from MSCC to the U of M.

Operation of the program will be shared jointly between the two schools.  Those responsibilities will include academic advising, decisions regarding class content, and coordination of participants’ transfer process.

The U of M already has such agreements with a number of community colleges, including Dyersburg State, Jackson State, and Southwest Tennessee community colleges in Tennessee and Mid-South Community College in West Memphis, Arkansas.

More information about DAP is available by phone from Motlow State Community College at 800-433-3243 or from the University of Memphis at 901-678-2111 or online at www.memphis.edu/admissions/dap_description.php.
