Articulation and Dual Credit

Students may earn free college credit through dual credit testing! Northeast State tests 1,000 high school students for credit each academic year and currently has 222 local dual credit agreements in place with area high schools! These agreements allow high school students who complete high school courses aligning with Northeast State courses to take end-of-course challenge exams to earn college credit. Students who successfully pass a challenge exam must enroll at the College within two years of high school graduation to have the credit transcribed on their college transcript. Students are limited to earning 8 credit hours of free college credit through dual credit.

Testing will be conducted on an as-needed basis in the fall, and testing will be offered in all subject areas at the spring Dual Credit Day event held on the Blountville campus. Students interested in finding out which courses at their high school are eligible for dual credit should contact their high school CTE principal or the Career and Technical Education office at or 423.354.5166.

Students enrolled at Northeast State (as a regularly admitted student or as a dual enrolled student) who want to take advantage of earned dual credit MUST request that dual credit be put on their transcript. They must request to have credits transcribed by filling out a Pathways Form and returning it the address listed on the form.
