Motlow State Community College has partnered with TCAT-Murfreesboro to create a smooth transfer process for students studying Nursing, Cyber Defense, Business Office, and Mechatronics. Transfer students from TCAT – Murfreesboro to Motlow may also receive credit for prior learning and certifications.
The articulation agreement between the schools will facilitate the transfer of TCAT - Murfreesboro students to Motlow; provide specific advisement for TCAT-Murfreesboro students who intend to transfer to Motlow; and, encourage academic and administrative coordination between the institutions.
“This partnership provides expanded opportunities for students in Rutherford County and surrounding areas,” said Scott Shasteen, Motlow communications director. “Motlow nursing, cyber defense, business office, and mechatronics graduates enjoy high placement rates in high-demand, high-wage occupations.”
The Nursing component involves the LPN-RN Transition Program. TCAT-Murfreesboro LPN graduates can easily transition into the Motlow LPN-RN program. Prior experience and certifications can speed up the process of earning a degree in Cyber Defense, Business Office, and Mechatronics.
Students wishing to transfer credits to Motlow must meet the admissions requirements, and Motlow reserves the right to reject any student’s admission per its standard policies and procedures. Transfer students from TCAT-Murfreesboro will provide an official transcript of completed courses to Motlow.
