Tech-Track/Dual Credit

Tech-Track is a federally funded program that provides a seamless transition from secondary education to post-secondary education. It was developed by Chattanooga State and funded in part through the Re-authorization of Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Act of 2006 (Perkins IV). Tech-Track provides opportunities for students to receive college credit, free of charge, for approved courses completed while still in high school.

To take advantage of this dual credit, students must

  • Pass (70%) an articulation exam created by Chattanooga State instructors
  • Submit a College Credit Application
  • Attend Chattanooga State Community College
  • Apply for dual credit within 2 years of high school graduation

Dual enrollment is also available for all high school students. The dual enrollment program allows a high school student to enroll in Chattanooga State and begin taking college courses. Find more information at  Early College.
