New “reverse transfer” agreement gives TCC students a new path to an associate degree

A new agreement between Tidewater Community College and Old Dominion University provides students with a new path to an associate degree.

TCC students who transfer at least 45-credit hours to Old Dominion University are eligible for an exclusive opportunity to earn their associate degree at Old Dominion.

“We are thrilled to offer this new opportunity to TCC students who transfer before earning their degrees,” said Kellie Sorey, PhD, TCC’s associate vice president for Academic Affairs. “This reverse transfer agreement, signed last week, strengthens our relationship with ODU while helping students achieve their educational goals.”

This unique “reverse transfer” program is a first between TCC and ODU. Eligible TCC students admitted to ODU who opt-in to the program complete classes as Monarchs. The credits earned at ODU are then “transferred” back to TCC to complete the associate degree.

Interested students admitted to ODU can get started by completing this form. For more information, contact TCC’s Virtual Student Support Team at 757-822-1111.

New leadership degree prepares students for careers in management

Tidewater Community College introduces a new associate degree in leadership this spring.

The 61-credit Associate of Science in Business Administration with a specialization in Leadership prepares students for organizational leadership and management positions.

TCC’s leadership degree is designed to meet the needs of working adults, military-related students, as well as recent high school graduates.

Courses include project management; principles of supervision; principles of management; business analytics; and communications management.

Students wishing to transfer to a four-year program in leadership will be well positioned to do so.

In addition, TCC has an articulation agreement with Old Dominion University enabling students to transfer all credits into ODU’s Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies Leadership degree.

Military members may be awarded academic credit for military education, training, experience and other forms of prior learning. In addition, most courses use online, open education resources, saving students money on textbooks.

Classes are available on each of TCC’s four campuses during the day, evening and online.

 Summer classes begin May 24.
