Tennessee high school students can earn college credit through APSU’s online dual enrollment program

February 17, 2017 | Email This Post Print This Post

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Thanks to Austin Peay State University’s statewide, dual enrollment program, GovNow, high school juniors and seniors from across Tennessee can now get a jumpstart on their college careers, and potentially save more than $7,000 on tuition for a four-year degree.

A major component of GovNow (a reference to APSU’s mascot, the Governor) is the incentive that students can earn four college-level classes for free.

Austin Peay Dual Enrollment - GovNow

Students who have completed their sophomore year of high school and who meet the dual admission requirements can begin taking online dual enrollment classes through APSU the summer before their junior year.

Students that want to take full advantage of the program, with its discounted tuition rates that continue after thosefour free classes, have the potential to earn an associate degree—theequivalent of two years of college—by the time they graduate high school.

“It made sense to go ahead and start getting core classes knocked out,” Rebecca Perantoni, a former APSU dual enrollment student, said. “I was able to focus right away on my major.”

Perantoni was able to finish her bachelor’s and master’s degrees at Austin Peay in the time it typically takes to complete a bachelor’s degree.

Hannah Musgrove, an APSU student majoring in chemistry and music, took dual enrollment classes while still in high school, and she believes the experience prepared her to be a better student once she entered college.

“It not only helps get you ahead on credits, but it prepares you for navigatingcampus, assignments and a college schedule before you have seven classes tobalance,” she said. “Basically, it gives you time to learn the basics of the college experience so you are able to focus more on the classes at hand, instead of the novelty of everything else.”

The University’s GovNow program is open to students from any high school in Tennessee, including home-school students, who have:

  • Completed the sophomore year of high school.
  • A minimum high school GPA of 3.0.
    • ACT subscores of 19 in math and English.
  • Parent/guardian approval.
    • Principal or counselor approval.
