All Tennessee Board of Regents colleges and universities require that all first time degree-seeking students undergo assessment using the ACT (students under 21) or ACCUPLACER (for students 21 and older). Transfer students who have not successfully completed college-level mathematics, reading, and writing courses must also undergo assessment. Further information regarding basic skills assessment can be obtained by contacting the Testing Center on the Roane County or Oak Ridge campuses.
Students whose assessment results require enrollment in Learning Support courses may not enroll in certain college-level courses until they have satisfactorily completed Learning Support. Exceptions to this policy require the approval of the Dean of the college-level course.
