Roane State Community College
The Smart Starts are based on best practices for student success including the following principles:
- Students are encouraged to complete 30 credit hours as soon as they can.
- College level Math and English should be taken immediately following successful completion of Learning Support.
- Speech 1010 and COLS 1010 are highly recommended during the first or second semester as excellent foundational courses and to explore career options.
- For the element of choice and exploration, the Smart Starts include a choice to enroll in a targeted elective(s) based on student’s interest and/or potential major.
