Partnership Enrollment Program (PEP)
Beginning fall 2009 Southwest Tennessee Community College and the University of Memphis (U of M) will partner to offer a Partnership Enrollment Program that guarantees university admission to any student who completes the associate's degree university track (A.A. or A.S.). The agreement benefits students by reducing the total cost of higher education by encouraging students to complete the associate's degree at the community college. Students also benefit from improved and collaborative academic advising and by completion of Partnership contracts. This agreement provides only for general admission to the U of M. Requirements for admission to individual academic programs may vary. By making this choice early in their academic career, students will receive advising and access to some U of M services and activities prior to their admission to the U of M.
