Dual Enrollment Courses Offered To Students

Volunteer State Community College is offering online dual enrollment classes to Putnam County students at Upperman, Monterey and Cookeville High Schools, and officials say students need to start considering the classes for summer and fall. Dual enrollment allows students to earn high school and college credit at the same time. Grant money is available to help pay for the courses through a Tennessee Educational Lottery grant program. Vol State is offering 16 online dual enrollment courses this semester and interested students can get more information about summer and fall classes. It’s handled through the Putnam County online learning program called VITAL -- Virtual Instruction to Accentuate Learning. That program started in 2008 and offers a number of online learning opportunities for Putnam County students. You can view their website here.
