Admissions - Visiting, Certificate & Non-Degree Students

Before you apply, complete the questionnaire on the Admissions home page! That will give you the correct application type!

Non-Degree Students

If you are a student who wishes to take classes at Pellissippi State — but who does not wish to earn a degree from us or from another institution — you are a non-degree student. You may be auditing classes, or simply taking credit classes for personal enrichment.

Non-degree students may not qualify for traditional financial aid, and may have special advising or registration qualifications.

Your steps to enrollment:

 

  1. Apply to attend Pellissippi State.

Apply as a non-degree student. As part of the application process, you’ll need to provide proof of immunization, and proof of U.S. citizenship. You may be required to provide other documentation as well. Check your myPellissippi account regularly for all requirements.

You may be required to submit proof that you’ve taken certain prerequisite courses. If you are, you’ll receive a message from us in myPellissippi or via email.

Application deadlines are listed in the Loading... and in Important Academic Dates.

 

  1. Check myPellissippi often during the enrollment process.

Within 48 hours of completing your application to Pellissippi State, you will receive an email with information about myPellissippi. myPellissippi is your personal online account with Pellissippi State, and it is where we will send all of your notices about applying for financial aid, paying fees, confirming attendance, registering for classes and even seeing your grades and requesting transcripts.

The first time you log in, you will need to change your password. Your first password is always a capital “P” followed by your student ID number and the “#” sign. This password will only work once. The first time you log in, change your password to something unique and memorable. If you have issues, call HelpDesk at 865-694-6537.

 

  1. Confirm your schedule and pay tuition & fees.

Once all of previous steps are completed — including registering for classes — all students must confirm their schedule and pay tuition and fees. After any financial aid awards you receive appear on the confirmation screen in myPellissippi, you must confirm your schedule and pay any remaining tuition and fees. If your financial aid covers the cost of tuition and fees, you still must confirm your schedule. Students who do not confirm their schedules run the risk of having their schedules deleted. 

If you were selected for FAFSA verification and are not able to complete verification by the Schedule Confirmation and Fee Deadline, you will need to set up a payment arrangement with the Cashier or risk being dropped from class.






Certificate Students

Certificate Students are those who wish to earn a standalone certificate, not a certificate that is embedded in an associate degree program. Certificate students may not be eligible for some forms of financial aid.

Your steps to enrollment:

 

  1. Apply to attend Pellissippi State.

Apply as a non-degree student. As part of the application process, you’ll need to provide proof of immunization, and proof of U.S. citizenship. You may be required to provide other documentation as well. Check your myPellissippi account regularly for all requirements.

You may be required to submit proof that you’ve taken certain prerequisite courses. If you are, you’ll receive a message from us in myPellissippi or via email.

Visiting Students

If you’re a student at another college or university looking to take a credit class or two at Pellissippi State, you are a visiting student. Pellissippi State has pathways and agreements with many other higher education institutions to help your credits transfer.

Visiting students may not qualify for traditional financial aid, and have unique advising requirements.
