Chattanooga State Community College will host its semi-annual Open House on Saturday, March 24 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. beginning at the Amphitheater on the main campus, 4501 Amnicola Hwy.
"This event caters to students of all ages. With a wide array of high school programs designed to offer students an accelerated career path; one-to two-year technical and career programs that will open doors to prompt employment; or for the student who wishes to pursue a baccalaureate degree and beyond … Chattanooga State is a great starting point," officials said.
In addition to a campus-wide open house, the Division of Engineering & Information Technologies has also scheduled its own open house on the same day and time. Prospective students interested in engineering and information technologies careers should meet in the Center for Engineering, Technology, Arts & Sciences building (CETAS) for hands-on opportunities to discuss these careers.
The Open House gives both students and their parents the opportunity to meet with administrators, faculty, staff, and students to learn more about summer and fall classes. Information about admissions, financial aid and scholarships, including the Pell Grant which is now available year-round, career planning, student activities and campus organizations will be available. An egg hunt and other games will be presented by Student Life and light refreshments will be served.
Graduating high school seniors in 2018 using the Tennessee Promise scholarship who are planning to attend Chattanooga State this fall may wish to use this time to apply for admission, officials said. Student Affairs representatives will assist students during this event to answer any questions.
Adult students can learn more about Tennessee Reconnect, a last-dollar scholarship that allows Tennessee adults who qualify and have not earned an associate or bachelor’s degree to attend Chattanooga State free of tuition and mandatory fees, while attending at least part-time. To find out more about TN Reconnect, attend an information session at 10 a.m. in the Student Support Center located in room 124 of the IMC Building.
