Dual Studies, or First Class, is a program which allows students who are currently enrolled in high school to earn college credit toward a degree or a certificate at a Tennessee public institution of higher education. Courses are taught by college faculty to high school juniors and seniors who have been admitted to the college. Tuition and fees are required as well as paperwork for the admission process.  Letter grades are awarded on the college transcript and most credits are transferable to other colleges. 

Dual Enrollment -  refers to a class taken by a high school student who is enrolled simultaneously in college while seeking high school credit for the college course. High school credit is awarded in addition to the college credit, which may count towards a high school diploma.

To enroll in the Dual Studies Program applicants should:

  1. Submit an application for admission and required immunization records.
  2. Complete First Class Registration form. This form requires school administrator and parental signatures.
  3. Applicant must have a 3.0 GPA or higher on a 4.0 scale or 2.75 on a 5.0 scale to enroll in academic courses.
  4. Submit high school transcript with ACT , Pre-ACT exam or equivalent.  ACT/Pre-ACT exam or equivalent sub-scores in mathematics and reading must be 19 or higher, and English requires a score of 18 or higher to enroll in dual studies courses.  Once the ACT test has been taken, the Pre-ACT or equivalent exam scores will no longer be considered.  Exceptions must be approved by the Dual Studies Department.
  5. Complete a Tennessee Dual Enrollment Grant form (online) if requesting lottery funding toward the cost of tuition.

Dual Enrollment students must submit a final high school transcript verifying high school graduation and work with the Student Enrollment Services staff to make the transition from dual enrollment status to college degree-seeking status. 

To enroll in Dual Enrollment coursework students should contact their high school counselor. NOTE: procedure changes in the Dual Studies Program are continuous. Please contact the Director of Dual Studies at Roane State for current information, 865-882-4504.
