    Dual Enrollment

    Dual enrollment (DE) is a postsecondary course, taught either at the postsecondary institution or at the high school, by postsecondary faculty or credentialed adjunct faculty. Dual enrollment instructors must meet postsecondary requirements, but do not have to meet specific TN teacher licensure or endorsement requirements.

    Dual enrollment courses can be taught at the postsecondary campus, the high school, or online. The location of the course does not affect its status as a dual enrollment course.

    Students are enrolled at the postsecondary institution and earn postsecondary credit upon completion of the course. 

     

    Dual Enrollment Grant

    The dual enrollment grant is one of the Tennessee Education Lottery Scholarships, and it provides grant funding for dual enrollment tuition and fees. The dual enrollment grant pays the full cost of tuition and fees for a student’s first two dual enrollment courses. The grant application must be completed each year prior to enrolling in any dual enrollment class.
