Chattanooga State Super Saturday Is This Weekend

Wednesday, August 2, 2017

Super Saturday is coming to Chattanooga State Community College this Saturday. The College will be open from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Personnel from admissions, financial aid, the Bursar’s office, advising, and enrollment departments will be available to assist students. Students will be able to get answers to questions about applications, paying for college, and what processes need to be completed before classes begin. 

Students whose registration files are incomplete should plan to arrive for help at the following times: 9:30 a.m. for last names that begin with A-G; 10:30 a.m. for H-N; 11:30 a.m. for O-T; and 12:30 p.m. for U-Z.

Throughout the day, students can explore the campus, visit departments, the Kolwyck Library and Information Commons (KLIC), and the bookstore.

"Incoming TN Promise students should already have completed many of the requirements to attend Chattanooga State this fall, but if you have questions or help is needed, Super Saturday is for you," officials said.  "It’s not too late to make the best decision of your life by returning to college. If you are an adult student and qualify for TN Reconnect, tuition and mandatory fees are free."

To learn more about TN Reconnect, information sessions will be presented from 10 a.m.-noon in OMN-124/126 on Saturday.
