UTM. JSCC enter dual enrollment agreement

UT Martin and Jackson State Community College entered into a dual-enrollment agreement on April 3, providing a seamless pathway to transition from JSCC to UT Martin.

Dual admission for first-year students is available to students who meet admission guidelines for both schools, have a 3.0 or better high school grade-point average (GPA) or a 2.7 high school GPA and a minimum ACT score of 21 or SAT score of 980.

Students can transfer from JSCC to UT Martin with a completed associate degree at JSCC or have completed 60 hours at JSCC with a minimum 2.0 GPA.

“We are thrilled to partner with Jackson State Community College,” said UTM Chancellor Yancy Freeman. “Students have an incredible opportunity for training, gaining credentials and getting degrees in West Tennessee.”

JSCC President Carol Rothstein said the agreement was years in the making.

“Over the years, we have seen more than 1,000 students transfer from Jackson State to UT Martin successfully,” she said.

“We are here today to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to support student success and community prosperity by renewing and reconfirming this partnership.”
