TN Reconnect Information Sessions Scheduled At Chattanooga State

Thursday, February 8, 2018

Beginning with the fall semester of 2018-19 academic year, the Tennessee Reconnect program will allow Tennessee adults who have not earned an associate or bachelor’s degree to attend an eligible institution, like Chattanooga State, free of tuition and mandatory fees, while attending at least part-time.

Chattanooga State has planned a series of weekly information sessions from February through May to inform and prepare adults for the Tennessee Reconnect last-dollar scholarship. These sessions were planned to help accommodate busy adults with varied schedules from the Chattanooga State service area.

Main campus sessions at 4501 Amnicola Hwy. will be held in the Student Support Center located in the IMC building at 10 a.m. on the first and third Wednesdays, at 5:30 p.m. the second and fourth Tuesdays and at 10 a.m. the fourth Saturday.

Adults from the northern part of Chattanooga State’s service area can attend sessions at the Dayton Site, 200 4th Ave., at 3:30 p.m. on the first Tuesday of the month. Dayton’s phone number is 423-365-5010.

Those adults living on the western end of the service area, can plan to attend a session at 3 p.m. CST at the Kimball Site, 2100 Main St., on the first Thursday of the month. Kimball’s phone number is 423-837-1327.

To RSVP for any information session, call 423.697.3346 or email tnreconnect@chattanoogastate.edu.  Complete the application at TNReconnect.gov or learn more at ChattanoogaState.edu/tnreconnect.
