Interested and qualified juniors and seniors are encouraged to sign up for courses offered through area Tennessee Technology Centers and Roane State Community College.
Dual enrollment means a student will receive both high school and college credit for successfully completing the course.
In order to be eligible to take a Dual Enrollment course, a student must have both a GPA equal to or greater than a 3.0, and a score equal to or greater than a 19 on the appropriate subtest of the ACT.
Students will need to provide their own transportation to RSCC or TTC.
Scholarship money may pay a portion of the cost of one college course per semester (up to 4 semesters) with the student responsible for the difference.
Students who successfully pass a dual enrollment course will receive a grade on their high school transcript that is one letter grade higher than the RSCC grade, with the exception of a failing grade.
All dual enrollment classes will be reviewed and approved by school administrators, and on-line classes may be taken with administrator approval only.
Students may not take four courses off-campus without administrative approval. Students are responsible for keeping up to date with important events and activities at their home school.
Students will not be allowed to audit a class. If a student withdraws within the proper time frame of RSCC policy, then a class will be scheduled for that student at their home school or the Morgan County Career & Technical Center.
Roane State Courses:
Students must submit the RSCC application form and $20 and be admitted to RSCC in order to enroll in classes for college credit.
Contact your school counselor for applications to begin this process.
Students will need transportation since some of the sources are offered at the various Roane State campuses in the area (like Wartburg, Harriman, Oak Ridge, and Crossville).
Possible courses include:
Emergency Medical Technology

Students interested in taking advantage of this opportunity should contact their school counselor in the spring of their sophomore or junior year during pre-registration to begin the registration process with Roane State or the TN Technology Center.
