MURFREESBORO, TN (AP)  Middle Tennessee State University and Motlow State Community College have announced a dual-admission program that will help students earning a two-year associate's degree to apply those credits toward a bachelor's degree.

MTSU president Sidney McPhee and Motlow President Mary Lou Apple signed the agreement on Wednesday, according to a statement from MTSU.

McPhee said that data from the Tennessee Higher Education Commission shows MTSU is the first choice in the state for transfer students, and Motlow is MTSU's top feeder school.

Students who fulfill dual-admission requirements, including a 2.0 grade-point average, are guaranteed admission to MTSU.

The university already has established dual-admission programs with Chattanooga State and Nashville State Community Colleges.
