King University News :: Roane State & King University to Sponsor Roan Alliance Chamber Breakfast Sept. 3

Harriman, Tenn. – Roane State Community College and King University will sponsor the Roane Alliance Chamber of Commerce Breakfast on Tuesday, Sept. 3.  The event will begin at 8 a.m. at Roane State Community College’s Harriman campus located at 276 Patton Lane, Harriman, Tenn.  The program speakers will include Roane State’s Vice President for Student Learning, Dr. Diane Ward, and King University’s President, Dr. Greg Jordan.

Students at Roane State Community College’s Harriman location now have the opportunity to transfer into King University’s Graduate and Professional Studies Online Programs (GPS) and complete their bachelor’s degree. 

Thanks to an articulation agreement established between the two schools, Roane State students, upon completion of their associate’s degree, may enter directly into the GPS program with priority consideration for admission.  King’s GPS program provides adult-oriented degree programs designed to reduce the challenges adult learners face.

“This collaboration creates not only opportunities for Roane State students to earn four-year degrees without having to leave the community but also prepares them for employment in careers that are in-demand in the college’s service area,” said Micah Crews, associate vice president for Enrollment Management at King.

Roane State students in Harriman have the opportunity to enter the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree program as well as the Bachelor of Science for Registered Nurses (RN-BSN) program.
