Tennessee Student Success Course

In the Fall of 2015, the Tennessee Higher Education Commission, Tennessee Board of Regents, and Tennessee College Access and Success Network collaborated to produce the Student Success Course to support the Governor’s Drive to 55 initiative. The Student Success Course began as an online course designed to equip high school students with the skills and information needed to enroll and succeed in higher education.

In the Fall of 2017, the Student Success Course was updated and redesigned to focus on college access and success content relevant to 11th and 12th grade students. The course is designed to be a hybrid course—there are lessons with video content and assignments for students to complete in a computer lab as well as lessons for teachers to use in the traditional classroom setting.

The course is aligned with Tennessee Department of Education standards and has been broken up into four topical modules: College 101, Getting In, Gearing Up for College, and College Skills and Success. You can access the complete resource guide as well as video content by module by clicking on the links below:
