Dual Studies 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. The admissions process must be completed and students are responsible for tuition and fees.

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.

  2. 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.
