Tech Prep is a career-focused initiative combining rigorous academic coursework with high technology interests. Students develop skills in math, science, and communications along with their technical classes to prepare for targeted career pathways. After completing a high school program, College Tech Prep students transfer smoothly into associates and bachelor's degree programs.

Advanced Standing

Depending upon the specific College Tech Prep program, students who 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 maintain 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.
