Regents Online Campus Collaborative
The Regents Online Campus Collaborative (ROCC) offers students the ability to continue or complete their education online. This collaborative is operated by the Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR), and the course offerings are provided by TBR colleges and universities from across the state of Tennessee. Program operations and guidelines are under the management of the Regent Online Campus Collaborative located in Nashville, TN. As with all TBR schools, ROCC is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
What students needs to know
Classes are taught by faculty from TBR colleges and universities from across the state, including Pellissippi State Community College. As part of the collaborative, Pellissippi State operates as a home school for students seeking to take ROCC courses, allowing them to register, pay tuition, and receive credit for these courses. Since classes are taught by faculty from Tennessee colleges and universities, calendar deadlines as well as software and text book requirements may vary from Pellissippi State’s non-ROCC classes. Also, ROCC courses have a higher tuition due to the extra technology fees.
Students who have not taken online courses previously, who are not comfortable troubleshooting their own computer issues and are not ready for college level English are strongly discouraged from registering for online courses. For students who are comfortable with computers and working independently, ROCC courses provide a great opportunity to begin or complete a degree.
