    3. Articulation of credits received in diploma programs in technology centers to Associate of Applied Science Degree (A.A.S.) programs in community colleges may occur under the following two provisions:
  2. Articulation to General Technology Majors or Equivalent Majors in Community Colleges
    1. A student who has completed a diploma program consisting of at least 900/i>contact hours at a Tennessee Technology Center will receive credit toward the General Technology Major, A.A.S. Degree, at community colleges by meeting the following requirements:
      1. The student must meet all regular admission requirements of the community college as published in the institutional catalog.
      2. The student must provide official transcript from the technology center.
      3. The student who is admitted to degree admission status must meet all applicable requirements of the Developmental Studies Program (DSP), as indicated by the appropriate placement instrument.
