Dual Enrollment

Dual Enrollment is the enrollment of a high school student in one or more specified college courses for which the student will be awarded both high school and college credit. High school students can take college courses at their high school (where available), on any NSCC campus, or online. Courses will not be expected to count toward the student’s high school diploma unless the student has made prior arrangement with the high school, umbrella school and/or local board of education. The student is responsible for obtaining verification of transfer credit to their chosen university.

To enroll in the Dual Enrollment program applicants must:

  1. Be a junior or senior in high school.
  2. Have a minimum sub-score of 19 on the ACT in math and reading and a sub-score of 18 on the English portion.
  3. Meet all prerequisites of the course or courses in which they wish to enroll.
  4. Have written permission from their high school principals and parents or guardians.

Dual Credit

Dual Credit is a program that allows Career and Technical Education high school students the opportunity to earn college credits for college courses that are equivalent to the high school course(s) they are taking. College credit is earned by passing a comprehensive test that covers the competencies of the college course.

College credit earned through Dual Credit will transfer to other post-secondary institutions at the discretion of the receiving institution. It is up to the individual student to contact the receiving college/university to verify if the credit earned will transfer.

Steps to Earning Dual Credit

  1. If you are interested in earning college credit through the Dual Credit program, talk to your CTE teacher or school counselor to determine if your high school participates or is eligible to participate. The high school can contact Nashville State Community College’s High School Programs department to discuss Dual Credit options for their CTE programs.
  2. Submit the completed Dual Credit Application, the exam fee, and a copy of your high school transcript by the deadline stated on the application to:
    Nashville State Community College
    High School Programs
    120 White Bridge Road
    Nashville, TN  37209
    highschoolprograms@nscc.edu
  3. If a student passes the assessment, a letter along with a packet of information will be sent to notify the student of the next steps. Typically passing is scoring a 70% or higher on the assessment, but it is up to the individual Nashville State Community College department to determine the standard for earning college credit.
  4. College credit is not awarded or transcripted until the student completes the application for admission process to Nashville State Community College and pays the $20 application fee. Details on this process will be included with the packet mailed to the student.
