Terra State Community College and the Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science (CCMS) has come together to fill a glaring need for those wanting to obtain a Bachelor of Mortuary Science degree.  CCMS receives numerous calls every week from potential students wanting to take a portion of the required classes online.  This is where Terra State came in.  The college created a Pre-Mortuary Science path to fill the void.  This one of a kind program will allow to complete prerequisites and enter CCMS to complete the degree.

The new program will admit up to 25 students for each fall and spring semester.  Students are required to follow the pre-mortuary science path.  Students who complete the program with a 2.0 GPA will be guaranteed admission to CCMS.  Terra State will provide an official transcript at no cost to the student.  Conversely, CCMS will waive the application fee.

Under TSCC’s Goal Oriented Tuition program, students will pay the same tuition for each semester:  $2142 for in-state students and $4284 for out-of-state students.  However, TSCC is requesting approval to offer the program to all students at the in-state cost.  Students can also complete the Free Application for Federal Students online at https://fafsa.ed.gov/ and enter the Terra State code #008278 for financial assistance.

Students who choose TSCC to begin the pursuit of a degree from CCMS will have many advantages:  Courses can be taken online allowing for great flexibility and lower tuition than a four-year institution.

Founded in 1882, CCMS is the nation’s oldest, private, non-profit, fully accredited school of its kind.  Students can obtain an Associate Degree of Applied Science or Bachelor of Mortuary Science.  Alumni of the college go on to careers in funeral homes, tissue banks, preneed, hospice, bereavement counseling and more.  Visit www.ccms.edu to learn more about the college.
