The Tennessee Board of Regents provides students with the opportunity to receive credit for Dual Enrollment . This means, a student can take a course in high school and receive post-secondary credit at the same time.
Dual enrollment courses may be offered on the Tennessee Technology Center Campus, while many are held on site at local high schools.
Upon graduation, high school students can continue their educational journey to the Tennessee Technology Center at Nashville. With credit already earned, students have the possibility of completing the program ahead of schedule and at a reduced expense.
Articulation is a term used to describe the process by which students who complete work at one educational level can get credit for that training at the next higher educational level.
This means that high school work and post-secondary training will not be duplicated.
By earning a diploma from the Tennessee Technology Center, students can apply the diploma for credit towards an Associate of Applied Science degree at any Tennessee Board of Regents community college as per TBR 2:01:00:03.
Dual Enrollment Benefits
· Being a dual enrollment student provides several benefits:

· No duplicated learning
· Completion of programs at a faster pace
· Families save money when their child receives post-secondary credit for high school work and community college credit for diplomas earned from the Tennessee Technology Center at Nashville
Continuing Education Opportunities for TTC Graduates
Upon earning a diploma from the Tennessee Technology Center at Nashville, students can apply their TTCN diploma for credit towards an Associate of Applied Science degree at any Tennessee Board of Regents community college.
30-hours of college credit will be granted towards a 60-hour General Technology Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) Degree. Students applying for this credit are required to meet the standard entrance requirements at the community college of their choice. Students may then earn their A.A.S. Degree upon completion of the General Education requirements or core courses.
TBR Community Colleges in Middle Tennessee include: Columbia State Community College, Nashville State Community College, Volunteer State Community College, and Motlow State Community College (Smyrna Campus).
In addition to the General Technology A.A.S., TTC Nashville has articulation agreements that grant 34-credit hours to Automotive Technology graduates and 40-credit hours to Aviation Maintenance graduates who continue their studies at Nashville State Community College.
With a Technology Center diploma and an Associate of Applied Science Degree in hand, a student may enroll in a Tennessee Board of Regents university with the possibility of receiving 60 credit hours towards a Bachelor Degree. The receiving institution determines if they can award credit, and if so, how much credit may be granted.
