Tuskegee, AL (August 9, 2023) – Trenholm State Community College and Tuskegee University have formed a partnership that will provide a seamless transfer process for Trenholm State students to complete their bachelor’s degree. This partnership was formalized with a Memorandum of Understanding Signing Ceremony held today, Wednesday, August 9th at Tuskegee University.
As part of the agreement, Tuskegee will award three transfer students scholarships every fall – a Tuskegee Merit Scholarship; Tuskegee Transfer Grant; and an Alabama Transfer Grant. The agreement also offers a reverse transfer credit opportunity, which allows Trenholm students to transfer to Tuskegee before they have completed their associate degree. Students who are transferring will be allowed to participate in Tuskegee events the semester before they transfer – allowing them to enjoy athletic events; the Learning Resource Center; and Career Services resources.
Dr. Kemba Chambers, President of Trenholm State Community College, stated “We are thrilled to have a new partnership with Tuskegee University. The signing of this articulation agreement is historic and monumental, as this is our first articulation and partnership with Tuskegee University. Having this articulation agreement in place will provide future educational pathways for our students to seamlessly transfer to Tuskegee to complete their bachelor’s degree,” continued Dr. Chambers. Through this partnership, Trenholm State students will have a seamless transfer process, opportunities for transfer scholarships, advising from Tuskegee University advisors, as well as access to other student services and athletic events.
“Tuskegee University is proud to solidify this partnership with Trenholm State Community College, allowing even more students to enjoy the Tuskegee Experience,” said President Charlotte P. Morris. “This collaboration allows Trenholm students to continue their education at Tuskegee and more comfortably advance their academic aspirations.”
