Dual Enrollment

Students not dual enrolled with TCAT Dickson should consider completing an online TCAT enrollment application at the beginning of their senior year. This will place the student on the program wait list and increase their chance of being eligilbe to enroll during the Summer or Fall following their high school graduation.

Dual Enrollment is when a high school student receives credit at two institutions at the same time. At the high school level, the class is applied toward their high school diploma while at the Tennessee College of Applied Technology they are receiving hours toward their programs certificate or diploma.
