A.A./A.S. General Education Core

The A.A./A.S. (Associate of Arts/Associate of Science) General Education Core certificate is designed to provide the common 41-hour, general education core of the TBR system; students are ensured that all credits will transfer to all TBR and UT institutions.

This certificate will benefit students pursuing a university parallel program in which a defined Tennessee Transfer Path does not exist. For majors with no defined Transfer Path, it is often to the student’s advantage to transfer before completing the degree. This certificate will allow students to transfer with a formal, college-level credential.

Cohort-based enrollment will enable students to form learning communities and will provide students encouragement and support. Students will be able to complete the 41 required hours of general education within three semesters. The cohort plan will provide students with a clearly defined program completion map, including total program costs and date of completion, prior to starting their coursework.

Graduates may apply certificate credits earned toward an associate’s degree.
