The Tennessee Board of Regents community colleges and the state’s locally governed institutions have joined together to develop a common core of courses for the Associate of Fine Arts (A.F.A.) degree. This common curriculum allows students to transfer, without loss of credit, from Pellissippi State to any TBR university art program as juniors, pending successful reviews, etc.
