Students can get head start


High school students who want to get a head start on their college career can now do so, with money from the lottery helping to pay for it. Eligible juniors and seniors may now receive $300 a term to apply toward dual enrollment classes taken while still in high school. The dual enrollment classes allow students to receive both college and high school credit simultaneously.

Pellissippi State Technical Community College currently is partnering with Karns, Bearden, West, Maryville and William Blount high schools to offer dual enrollment English courses at each school. The college also offers dual enrollment classes taught at Pellissippi State to students who have permission from their high school principal or home school administrator to receive high school credit for the courses.

Students must take the ACT or SAT test, complete an admissions application and pay a $10 application fee.

For more information on dual enrollment opportunities, contact Leigh Anne Touzeau at 865-539-7013 or latouzeau@pstcc-.edu.
