TEXTBOOKS FOR DUAL ENROLLMENT CLASSES

The requirement for textbooks varies by class and instructor. 

Many dual enrollment classes taught by high school instructors are taught using textbooks provided by the high school, meaning there is no out of pocket textbook expense for a student. 

All other classes - online, main campus, collaborative, and APSU instructor-led classes - will have textbooks that students must purchase or rent.

Many online classes utilize a digital textbook that is automatically loaded to D2L, but not all do. Please ask your instructor for clarification on textbook access for online courses. If a digital textbook is loaded to your D2L, there will be an automatic charge placed on your student account for the textbook cost. Textbook expenses are not covered by the TN Dual Enrollment Grant or APSU and are the financial responsibility of the student.

It is the student's responsibility to utilize the Textbook Express tool located in their OneStop Web Self-Service to determine their textbook needs for any class in which you are enrolled. When in doubt, reach out to your instructor to confirm your textbook needs.
Please acknowledge your responsibility for textbooks:
DUAL ENROLLMENT GRANT

Applications for the Tennessee Dual Enrollment Grant (DEG) must be submitted online at https://www.tn.gov/collegepays/tsac-student-portal.html. It is the student's responsibility to apply for the grant, understand their individual award amount, and pay any remaining out-of-pocket expense each semester. Please feel free to contact our office for help determining your grant status and financial responsibility.

ELIGIBILITY FOR GRANT FUNDING

The state requires that students maintain a 2.75 combined college GPA in order to remain eligible for grant/HOPE funding from semester-to-semester. You may check your combined college GPA by contacting the dual enrollment office of the college(s) you are dual enrolled with. (Please note, your college GPA differs from your high school GPA.)
Please acknowledge that you understand that your combined college GPA must be 2.75 or high in order to remain eligible for grant funding from semester-to-semester:
HOPE ELIGIBILITY AND ADDITIONAL COURSES

If you take more than one course per semester you must meet HOPE eligibility (GPA of 3.0 or an ACT score of 21; home school students must meet ACT requirements). Once you have received DEG funding for the first four dual enrollment courses ($1,200), any DEG funding received for courses five through ten will be deducted from your HOPE Scholarship first semester award (up to $1,800).
Please check all that apply:
If you are not enrolled anywhere else, type "No".
If you haven't dual enrolled anywhere else, type "No".
