Roane State partners with Tennessee Tech for new dual-enrollment program

A new program designed to provide a smooth transition from Roane State Community College to Tennessee Tech University will launch this fall.

The program, “Roane to Tech,” ensures that Roane State graduates have guaranteed admission to Tennessee Tech.

Roane to Tech students will be known as “Golden Raiders,” a combination of Roane State Raiders and Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles. Through the new program, students have multiple opportunities to take advantage of dual-enrollment benefits.

Those in agriculture, biology, business, psychology, or sociology programs will be considered students at both institutions, receiving pre-defined degree plans, advising services from both schools, special access to events, waived application fees, and free Roane to Tech gear.

Students in elementary education and interdisciplinary studies can also join programs to earn their bachelor’s degrees entirely on a Roane State campus. As the program grows, the number of accepted academic programs is expected to increase.
