For some students, the workweek is simply too crowded to allow time for school. Pellissippi State offers weekend classes for some degree programs at the Magnolia Avenue Campus. In these programs, you can complete an entire degree on the weekends. Weekend classes are held on Saturdays from 8:30 a.m.-11:45 a.m. and from 12;15 p.m.-3:30 p.m.
GENERAL TRANSFER DEGREES
If you plan to earn your associate degree and then transfer to a four-year university — but you’re not sure what options you might pursue there — you can earn a general transfer degree. Completing one of these degrees will fulfill the general education requirements at a four-year university. However, that flexibility means that you’re responsible for ensuring that the courses you take will be accepted by the university you plan to attend.
TENNESSEE TRANSFER PATHWAY PROGRAMS
Tennessee Transfer Pathway programs are designed to seamlessly transfer to Tennessee Board of Regents or University of Tennessee institutions. Students who complete a TTP program will earn an Associate of Arts or an Associate of Science degree with a concentration in their area of study. Those areas of study count toward a four-year university major in that same area.
Career programs prepare students to earn their associate degrees and then enter the workforce. Associate of Applied Science degrees are offered in a number of program areas with numerous concentrations.
