Dual Enrollment Lottery Information Help: (800) Password Reminders: 11 English Exemption Policy Dual enrollment students are NOT eligible for the English Course Exemption that allows students with an ACT sub-score of 27 or better in English to enroll in both English 1010 and 1020, attend English 1020 and receive six semester hours credit for both courses with the grade earned in English Students are required to have four English credits for high school graduation and to jeopardize graduation by allowing English 1020, a one semester course, to meet the criteria proved to be unwise for several dual enrollment students. Therefore, dual enrollment students are required to enroll and complete both English 1010 and Calendar Policy The calendar policy states that dual enrollment students will follow the college calendar; however, RSCC faculty will attempt to be flexible in working with dual enrollment students regarding the high school calendar. A number of RSCC dual enrollment classes are located at the high schools and the college cannot convene class when the building is closed. In these cases, faculty are asked to work with the schools and plan accordingly using outside assignments or rescheduling classes as needed. When classes are held on the RSCC campuses, classes may or may not include college students as well as dual enrollment. For this reason, classes may continue through the secondary school s breaks. Therefore, high school students must discuss their attendance with individual instructors. Students may or may not be excused. Many instructors tend to be flexible as we work to serve the high schools with dual enrollment offerings. Occasionally, extracurricular competitions and events require high school students to be absent from classes. Faculty are asked to consider the relevance of the activity and assign make-up assignments accordingly. Emergency Medical Responder Age Rule The Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Division of the Tennessee Department of Health operates under the EMS Board and oversees training of the paramedic/emt program at Roane State Community College (RSCC). Rules and Regulations from the Board require Emergency Medical Responder students to be 17 years of age prior to course completion in order for the student to be eligible to sit for the state First Responder certification exam.
