This pathway is for students planning to transfer to the university for completion of the bachelor’s degree in Physical Therapy. A Physical Therapist is responsible for evaluating/assessing the needs of referred patients and formulating treatment plans.  The PT provides therapy services defined in treatment plans while working cooperatively with physicians, case managers, physical therapy assistants and auditors.

Transfer Options
Tennessee Transfer Pathways (TTPs) are advising tools designed to help community college students plan for transferring to a Tennessee public university or select regionally accredited, non-profit Tennessee private colleges and universities to complete their baccalaureate degree. The TTPs also constitute an agreement between community colleges and four-year colleges/universities confirming that community college courses meet major preparation requirements. For transfer to other four-year institutions, contact an advisor at the senior institution.  Note: Due to the transferability to a four-year institution, there are to be no course substitutions where a specific course is required in the TTP curriculum guide.  

All students graduating with a degree from VSCC are required to take the E-Proficiency Profile (EPP) to meet graduation requirements. More information can be found at https://www.volstate.edu/graduation/exit-exams.
