All DAY CLASSES (classes starting before 4:30 pm) canceled for Thursday, March 5 due to weather. Staff do not report.
Decision on evening classes will be made later. Watch for updates.
Students who follow this academic plan will receive an Associate of Science in Teaching.
The A.S.T. curriculum is designed for students who wish to complete the first two years of a program toward teacher certification in K-6 (elementary education) and then transfer to a Tennessee Board of Regents University for the completion of their four year degree. This curriculum will meet the lower division requirements for transfer to a Tennessee Board of Regents senior institution granting the bachelor's degree in elementary education. Due to varying requirements of four-year institutions, students are encouraged to select courses in consultation with an education advisor. Students who plan to transfer to the University of Tennessee or any other non-TBR university should contact their advisor for appropriate degree and transfer information.
