Thomas Nelson Community College’s (TNCC) TRiO program aims to increase student success and retention with two new initiatives, Smart Start to TNCC and Academic Boot Camp. Smart Start targets 2010 high school graduates and Academic Boot Camp is designed for students ages 25 and older. All applicants must meet the eligibility requirements for TRiO, a federally-funded program open to students in a transfer curriculum who are first-generation college students and meet low-income requirements.

Additionally, upon taking TNCC’s placement test, students must place into English College Composition I (ENG 111) and Pre-algebra (MATH 03) to qualify. The courses are part of the fall class schedule pre-selected by students when they enroll at TNCC.
