Additional course requirements: The Tennessee Board of Regents requires that students either demonstrate the appropriate skill levels in math, reading, and/or writing before enrolling in college-level courses or enroll in appropriate co-requisite experiences with college-level courses to develop competency in those skills while performing college-level work. ACT/SAT scores, classic ACCUPLACER test scores, next-generation COMPASS test scores, or other relevant information determine whether a student needs to enroll in co-requisite courses in math, reading, and/or writing (English).
Cooperative Education work experience in Industrial Process Control Technology and can be an important addition to a student’s formal classroom work. Co-op courses, if appropriate, may substitute for technical courses up to nine credit hours with the prior approval of the department head. All Co-op work must have department head approval. The Career Services Office will provide the correct course numbers. Students participating in Cooperative Education are encouraged to work a minimum of two terms.
