LYNCHBURG, TN (Nov. 15, 2016) — Representatives from Motlow State Community College and the University of Tennessee Chattanooga recently signed an articulation agreement allowing Motlow State's Honors Program students to transfer seamlessly into the UTC Honors College's Innovations in Honors (IIH) program.
Dr. Tony Kinkel, Motlow State President, and Dr. Steve Angle, UTC Chancellor, recently signed this important agreement that is designed to ensure that high-performing students can take advantage of Motlow State's low tuition and scholarship opportunities, including the Tennessee Promise, and then continue their path to academic excellence upon transfer to UTC.
UTC and Motlow recently implemented a dual admissions program, allowing Motlow students dual admission to the two campuses, an academic advisor on UTC's campus, and other academic and extracurricular benefits.
JuliAnna Dykes, a Motlow State honors student, plans to take advantage of the new honors articulation agreement and transfer to UTC in fall 2017 to major in biology. She was recently named "Student of the Year" by the National Collegiate Honors Council.
