UT Martin has teamed up with the Chickasaw Council, Boy Scouts of America, to offer college credit for scouts completing certain programs at Kia Kima Scout Reservation. Summer camp experiences provide physical and intellectual activities that incoporate many elements of healthy youth development and characterize students who excel in college. Former scouts credit Scouting with helping them gain self-confidence and leadership skills, and improving academic and career success.
First course: $60 (includes UT Martin admission fee)
Additional courses: $30 each
All credit is awarded as proficiency credit in collaboration with UT Martin's Department of Health and Human Performance.
KKSR scouts also are eligible for up to 4 UTM Dual Enrollment courses online at no cost during fall and spring semesters. These courses can be integrated into a regular high school curriculum, shorten the time to a college degree, and reduce college debt.
