Open House For Adult Learner

Pellissippi State Community College will be hosting an Open House on April 18 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. The Open House will focus on the needs of the non-traditional student…the Adult Learner. If you are 24 years of age or older, this Open House is for you!

The staff and faculty of Pellissippi State will provide informational sessions about financial aid for adult students, transferring credits, and getting credit for prior learning. If you have previously attended college, bring your transcript(s) and we can provide you with an informal review of your credits and give you a better idea of where you may be in your educational pursuit.

Sneak Peak Times

Discover the possibilities at Pellissippi State. We have what it takes to help students achieve their educational and career goals. For some, the goal may be to earn an associate's degree and enter directly into the workforce.

And, of course, many just want to take courses for fun or to boost an existing career.

We pride ourselves on the benefits we offer students to help them succeed: small class size, high-quality academics, low tuition, convenient times and locations, caring and helpful faculty, hands-on instruction, and state-of-the-art technology—just to name a few.
