Students who follow this academic plan will receive an Associate of Science in Teaching-Elementary Education.

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.

  1. Attainment of a 2.75 cumulative grade point average.
  2. Successful completion of Praxis Core Test or ACT score of 22 or higher (See note below)
