Southwest Tennessee Community College Hosts Dual Enrollment Meetings
Written by Brenda J. Rayner

Local high school students can get a jump start on college courses by participating in the Dual Enrollment program, a collaboration between Southwest and Memphis City Schools, Shelby County Schools, Fayette County Schools, Memphis-Area Home School Association, and local private schools.

Southwest will be hosting two Dual Enrollment meetings for the public on Thursday, April 27 from 6 p.m.-7:30 p.m. and Saturday, April 29 from 9 a.m.-11 a.m. The meetings will be held at the Southwest Macon Cove Campus, 5983 Macon Cove in the Farris Auditorium. To participate in the program a student must be enrolled for college courses leading towards a degree for which they also earn high school credit. College courses taken under the restrictions of this grant will not be applied toward the Tennessee HOPE Scholarship College GPA and the attempted credit hours limitation.

Eleventh and twelfth grade students eligible to participate in the Tennessee Dual Enrollment Grant program may receive up to $600 per award year ($300 per semester). For more information about the workshop and to register please call (901) 333-4046 or email .
