MTSU Goes Out of State for Latest Transfer Agreement

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) — Middle Tennessee State University has agreed to allow students who graduate with an associate's degree from Georgia's Albany Technical College to pursue a bachelor's degree in electromechanical engineering technology in Murfreesboro.

According to MTSU, the agreement marks the first time the university has formed such a partnership with an out-of-state school.

MTSU Provost Brad Bartel and Albany Technical College President Anthony Parker on Tuesday signed the transfer agreement that allows students to attend two years at Albany Tech followed by two years at MTSU.

MTSU's other transfer agreements are with Motlow College for early childhood education, with Columbia State for nursing and early childhood education and with the Columbia State's Lewisburg campus for agribusiness.
