Tech Prep is a national initiative that combines college prep academics with a high technology career focus. Students take high level math, science and communications courses, along with their technical classes, in order to prepare for targeted career pathways. After completing a high school program, Tech Prep students make a smooth transition into associates and bachelors degree programs.

Advanced Standing

Depending on the specific College Tech Prep program, students who choose to attend Rhodes State College can save on tuition costs by earning Advanced Standing credits while in high school. High School students already enrolled in a College Tech Prep program should see their school counselor about Advanced Standing credits at Rhodes State College.


All Tech Prep students successfully completing their program are eligible to receive a $1,000 scholarship. Students who have maintained a 3.0 or higher cumulative GPA are eligible to renew the $1,000 scholarship for a second year. The scholarship is split between the fall and spring academic semesters.
