TN Dual Enrollment Grant

Students who meet the dual studies criteria may apply for the Tennessee Dual Enrollment Grant (TDEG) available at postsecondary institutions; it is funded from the proceeds of the state lottery to assist high school students with college tuition. This is not the HOPE Scholarship awarded to college students.

By using Roane State's First Class scholarship – which is awarded in your senior year – you can take three dual enrollment classes at no cost.

Here's how.

Junior year State grant   You pay
Take 1st class $500   $0
Take 2nd class $500   $0
Senior year State grant  Roane State scholarship You pay
Take 3rd class $200 up to $300 $0

However, there is a Title IV requirement that may effect dual enrollment students who do not successfully complete coursework. Besides the lottery benchmark requirements, students also have to be meeting Title IV Satisfactory Progress Standards. At RSCC, this means they must complete 67% of their coursework and maintain a 2.0 college GPA. This standard is checked after spring term, so if a dual enrollment student took just a spring class and received a “D” he/she would have a college GPA of 1.0 and; therefore, the student would be placed on Financial Aid (FA) Suspension. Suspended students will need to appeal with an explanation of why they had difficulty. If the FA Appeals Committee are in agreement, the suspended high school student may be reinstated.

The TDEG is awarded to Tennessee residents who are high school juniors or seniors. To be eligible to renew the grant, the student must maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.75 for all postsecondary courses attempted under the TN Dual Enrollment Grant.

Complete details for the TDEG are found online at TN Dual Enrollment Grant.
