Interstate Passport

The Interstate Passport ® at TMCC is awarded to students who have achieved lower-division general education learning outcomes in a set of approved courses that are recognized by all other colleges and universities participating in the Interstate Passport Network. Students must earn a grade of C (not C-) or higher in each of these approved courses to receive a Passport. Students earning the Passport at TMCC may transfer their general education as a block instead of course by course to any school that is also a Passport Network Member. This streamlined transfer of general education saves students time and money by not having to repeat general education requirements when they transfer to another Passport institution.
