Northeast State’s Accelerated Studies program – NextStep – will begin a new cohort this fall at the College’s Gray, Mountain City, and Unicoi County teaching sites with a flexible schedule of classes structured to meet the working adult student’s schedule.
The program is designed to help students earn an associate degree in five semesters. The program divides semesters into two seven-week sections with students attending two weekly class meetings and using interactive television and online teaching components for assignments and research. Students attend two classes during each session.
Students completing all five semesters earn an associate degree in General Studies. The degree and all credit hours are transferable to all Tennessee Board of Regents institutions such as East Tennessee State University, and many other area colleges and universities.
For more information, Northeast State has scheduled open houses for its sites in Gray, Mountain City, and Unicoi County to help familiarize potential students with programs and facilities at each location.
