This is why Trevecca offers 18 degrees programs fully online, so you can complete your education anywhere, any time.  We also have adult degree programs available on campus or a combination of on campus and online. Programs offered on campus allow you to focus on one class a time, one night a week, so you don’t have to worry about disrupting your busy schedule.

Tennessee Transfer Pathways

Tennessee Transfer Pathways is a resource designed for students transferring from a two-year college to a four-year university. Figuring out which credits will transfer to your new school can be confusing. Luckily, with Tennessee Transfer Pathways, you can be sure that your credits will count toward the completion of your degree at a participating four-year university. 

Prior Learning Assessment

You’ve worked hard since the last time you were in school, and we think that should count for something. At Trevecca, you will work directly with an advisor to complete a Prior Learning Assessment that will determine how many credits you’ve earned based on your life experiences. These experiences can include CLEP or DSST tests, various certifications, professional experience, and military training.
