Fayette-Ware students will have access to college credits

Plans are underway for students at Fayette-Ware Comprehensive High School to have access to two college courses offered through the University of Tennessee at Martin, beginning with the fall 2015 semester.
Juniors and seniors will be able to enroll in English 111 (first-level English composition) and Math 140 (College Algebra and Elementary Functions). This opportunity is available at reduced cost from previous years, largely because of the TSAC dual enrollment grant and UT Martin’s New Dual Enrollment Advantage Scholarship, effective fall 2015. Grades earned in dual-enrollment courses are transferrable and affect the student’s college grade point average.
UT Martin is a four-year university backed by the strength of the UT System. The Princeton Review has named UT Martin a “Best College in the Southeast” for 12 consecutive years, and U.S. News and World Report listed the school as a top-tier university among southern, master’s level institutions in the 2015 edition of America’s Best Colleges.
