A class equals a credit.  Every time a  student passes a class, they earn a credit.  Most classes are worth 1 credit, but some classes are 1/2 credit.  Students must earn 28 credits to be awarded a Science Hill Diploma.  The state of Tennessee designates 22 of those credits and 6 are electives.  Students have the opportunity to earn 32 credits in four years.

Dual enrollment takes place when a high school student is enrolled in high school and a college simultaneously.  Dual enrollment provides a means for high school students to accelerate their college education and get a feel for what learning will be like after high school. The Tennessee Dual Enrollment Grant awards two $500 grants towards two college classes.  Students may also receive $200 towards a third class.  See the Program of Studies or speak to your counselor about the application process.
