State Wide Dual Credit

Statewide dual credit provides academically challenging high school courses which are aligned to postsecondary standards. Students have the opportunity to earn credit that can be applied to any TN public postsecondary institution. Tennessee high school and postsecondary faculty work together to develop the learning objectives and a challenge exam for each course, which are tied to current postsecondary expectations. All statewide dual credit courses are approved by the Consortium for Cooperative Innovative Education before they can be offered as a part of the state’s current pilot program (see Public Chapter 967) for more information). -----Link to website
