General Transfer Degrees

The general transfer degree at Pellissippi State is for students who wish to earn an associate’s degree, but want to keep their options open when they transfer to a university. Completing one of these programs fulfills general education requirements for a four-year degree. However, this flexibility means that each student is responsible for ensuring that individual courses will be accepted by the university he or she plans to attend.
