Summer Registration Currently Underway At CSCC

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Summer registration is currently being held at Cleveland State Community College through Thursday, May 29 for all students.

“In order to streamline the process and eliminate one less barrier for students to access higher education, the Tennessee Board of Regents has waived the application fee, so students can apply now for summer registration and not have to pay an application fee before they get in the system and processed,” stated Jason Sewell, director of enrollment services. “Many times, a summer class can be a great way for students to concentrate on that one class or two that they may feel might be more difficult for them.

This allows them to focus entirely on that class without the demands of a full load. Taking summer classes is a great way to work toward completing a credential quicker.”

Cleveland State offers a wide variety of programs including three Associate of Arts options, three Associate of Science options, and seven Associate of Applied Science options with 21 concentrations, and 24 technical certificates. There are a number of different scheduling options for working adults, as well as the ADVANCE program, the Regent’s Online Degree Program, and programs for veterans. 

In addition to traditional day and evening classes, there are many distance learning options available to Cleveland State students, including online and independent study courses. 

New, readmitted and transfer students who are seeking a degree or a certificate, must participate in the New Student Online Orientation process and attend a New Student Advising and Registration session held at CSCC in order to register for the summer semester. These sessions are designed to familiarize students with the services, resources and programs available at CSCC. During these sessions, students will be able to register for classes, speak to an advisor and tour the campus. Instructions on how to complete the online orientation will be mailed to applicants after an admissions application has been received.

Classes begin on Monday, June 2 for both the first and the full summer session and classes begin on Monday, July 7 for the second summer session.

For more information about summer registration or to view a schedule of classes, please visit the Cleveland State website at or contact the Admissions office at (423) 478-6213.
