We are SO excited to partner with Northeast State Community College to offer a path to an associate's degree program for rising juniors (current 10th graders). Students who successfully complete the program will concurrently earn their high school diploma and an associate's degree! 

Requirements for Participating: 

1. Students must be a junior for the 2021-2022 school year.
2. Students must have a 3.0 GPA.
3. Students will need to take the ACT prior to taking certain courses. Students will need to earn an ACT score of 18 in English, 19 in Reading, and 19 in Math. **Placement assessment may be available.
4.Student would need to have taken Biology AND Chemistry/Physics, World Languages, Fine Art and Wellness/PE prior to junior year to be eligible (along with typical sophomores and freshman course)
5. Students must complete the admissions applications for either institution. The student’s school counselor and the institution will guide them through this process.

**Students who meet the Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation criteria could be eligible to receive the Middle College Scholarship (Northeast State) to assist with program costs. Once all financial aid options have been applied, the BTCS District will cover any remaining cost** 

The "Bear Track" is offered through Northeast State Community College. Courses will mostly be taught by Northeast State professors on the TN High School Campus, but students may have to travel to the Blountville campus or take online courses (course format is subject to change).
