University Connection

We're building partnerships to make learning more convenient for you! Our new University Connection agreements with Austin Peay State University (APSU), Tennessee Technological University (TTU) and East Tennessee State University (ETSU) allow you complete a bachelor's degree without ever leaving the Pellissippi State campus.

Through the Austin Peay agreement, students can earn bachelor's degrees in Manufacturing Engineering Technology and in Mechancal Engineering Technology.

Through the Tennessee Tech agreement, students can earn a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education.

Through the East Tennessee State agreement, students can earn a B.S. in Industrial Technology and in Interior Design.

Freshman and sophomores can enter either program by taking the appropriate pre-requisite courses at Pellissippi State. In some cases, transfer credit from other colleges may be applied. Contact the Admissions and Records office (865-694-6400) for transfer information.
