Northeast State Articulation Program

Northeast State Community College, in partnership with high schools located within the college’s service area, enables high school students to take selected high school courses which may later articulate to Northeast State. Articulation means that the student, upon demonstrating subject matter competency at the college level, can receive credit for college-level courses upon enrollment at Northeast State. This partnership enables the student/the college/and the State of Tennessee to save time and money while at the same time results in the student getting an early start to college, graduating earlier, and entering the workforce sooner.

Technical education students must pass the articulation assessments with a minimum grade of a "C". Health-Related Professions students must pass with a minimum grade of a "B". Successful students must assure that a Pathway form has been completed and sent to the office of High School Transitions. The college credit will then be transcribed to the student’s transcript upon enrollment and continued student status beyond the two week enrollment period. 

Students may bring up to eight hours of college level credit with them upon enrollment at Northeast State within two years of graduation from high school. Students should check with their Career Technical Education Principal for additional information and for the courses their school has articulated with Northeast State.
