How do I find out what online degrees are available through Northeast State? – Northeast State and the Tennessee Board of Regents colleges, universities, and technical centers have joined to offer the Regents Online Degree Program (RODP).  The Regents online course schedules are designed in interactive asynchronous format (students will not meet with instructors). Technical support for accessing course lessons and assignments is available 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. Regents' courses are entirely online with the exception of some proctored tests and are transferable among all the participating institutions.

How do I find the meeting dates for a Northeast State Internet class? – Internet courses offer students the opportunity to complete all or part of the work for a particular course via the Internet. These courses may follow a modified traditional class schedule or may meet only at selected times throughout the semester. To complete all requirements for these courses, students must be able to access the Internet. Students may access the Internet through the college's facilities or secure access on their own.

What is NextStep? NextStep is a fast-track alternative delivery program. Through this program, students may complete an Associate of Science Degree in General Studies (University Parallel) in 22 months (completion time may vary according to the number of courses taken each semester).  Following completion of the associate degree, students may transfer to a four-year institution for completion of the bachelor's degree. NextStep is a component of the Accelerated Studies Program and is organized around a cohort concept.  Generally, students attend classes one night each week (based on course availability or student schedule, students may attend classes more than one night each week), complete coursework via Interactive Television (ITV) and online modalities, and progress with the same group of students. Classes are generally held in 7 week blocks, allowing students continual progress through the program.

What classes are available at off-campus locations (Bristol, Elizabethton, Gray, Johnson City, Kingsport, Mountain City, or Unicoi County)? – Northeast State subscribes to the concept of accessibility by extending credit classes through off-campus centers and satellite facilities. Off-campus courses are available during the day and evening at off-campus locations based on community needs. To determine the availability of classes at off-campus teaching sites, students should refer to the off-campus sites’ web pages. Site and course offerings in Johnson City are pending.
