At A Glance
With Roane State, you can get a quality education without piling up massive student loan debt. Our tuition is about half of four-year schools'. Go to Roane State for two years, save money on tuition and then transfer to a four-year college. Or, earn a two year degree or one year certificate and enter the workforce. Either way, Roane State is the smart, affordable path to a college education.
The college has four sports (men's basketball, women's basketball, baseball and softball), and students can participate in intramurals. The Roane State Playmakers offer a variety of theatre productions, and musical opportunities are available in Concert Choir, Jazz Band, Stage Band, Bluegrass Band, or Celebration Singers.
