What immunizations do I need to enroll, and how do I obtain records of them?

How do I go about submitting high school/prior college transcripts? Does Roane State request them or do I?

Can I schedule a campus tour?

Do Roane State classes transfer to four-year colleges and universities?

What programs can I look into if I do not want to complete four years of college?

Roane State offers a wide variety of Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degrees, as well as certificate programs; to look into these programs in detail, simply refer to our Academic Programs and Majors and select “Career Pathways.”

What ACT or ACCUPLACER scores do I need in order to avoid taking Learning Support classes?

ACT/ACCUPLACER scores are required for admission, but are used specifically for academic placement. Because these scores are only valid for five years, students with outdated scores should be retested.

For students under 21-years old, academic placement depends on the ACT subsection scores in English, Math, and Reading Comprehension. If a student’s scores are below an 18 in English, 19 in Math, or a 19 in Reading, he or she will be required to enroll into Learning Support classes.

Students 21 and older must take the ACCUPLACER Placement Exam. To avoid having to take Learning Support classes, ACCUPLACER students must have a minimum of a 250 for Writing/English, 250 for Reading and 250 for Math.

What does it mean to be considered a full-time student?

A full-time student is one who is enrolled for a minimum of twelve credit hours per semester.

I need to schedule my new student orientation; where do I begin?

To sign up for a new student orientation session, please refer to NSO’s webpage for scheduling dates, locations, and options.
