In Tennessee, 900,000 adults have some college but no degree, and only 39 percent of working age adults currently have a degree or credential. TN Reconnect can help adults to reach a goal they set for themselves a long time ago, expand career opportunities by providing a better job or a promotion, as well as impact their family through demonstrating the result of hard work and determination. Approximately one-in-four undergraduate college students at Tennessee public institutions are adult learners.
All new, current or returning adult students residing in Tennessee may apply at TNReconnect.gov – and note there are no income requirements to qualify before applying to Chattanooga State at chattanoogastate.edu. When these steps are completed, file the FAFSA at FAFSA.ed.gov. Once eligibility is determined, adult students may enroll in a degree or certificate program at least part-time.
Financial aid representatives will help with FAFSA from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
All TN Reconnect applicants need to RSVP for an information session. Learn more and RSVP for a Reconnect Info Session at chattanoogastate.edu/tnreconnect or call 697-3346.
