Office of the Registrar

East Tennessee State University


General Information

Due to recent changes from the Tennessee Board of Regents, beginning Spring 2013 high school unit deficiency requirements will no longer be tracked. 

The following guidelines will be effective regarding high school unit deficiency requirements:

  • High School Unit Deficiencies will continue to be met with core courses used to satisfy general education requirements
  • Foreign language deficiencies will only be addressed if the student's major/degree require unit(s) of foreign language
  • All high school unit deficiency holds and remaining requirements will be removed from student accounts prior to registration for Spring 2013


**Although ETSU will no longer track completion of High School Unit Deficiencies, students that are deficient in the completion of United States History (in high school or through transfer work) are required to complete six semester hours of United States History or three semester hours of United States History and three semester hours of Tennessee History as part of their graduation requirements.**
