Cleveland State Community College will be hosting virtual Reconnect Information Sessions on Thursday, June 4, at 12 p.m. and Thursday, June 18, at 6 p.m.
During the information session, attendees can learn more about the Tennessee Reconnect scholarship that covers eligible adults’ tuition to all programs at CSCC and other affordable educational opportunities, such as Pell grants and the college’s institutional scholarships.
“Cleveland State wants to provide hope and options for adults in our community who have always wanted a college degree in a workforce-ready field,” said Cate Green, director of Recruiting, High School Relations, and Admissions. “Virtual sessions provide a unique opportunity to increase our reach into our five county service area, while still maintaining a personal face-to-face interaction.”
Tennessee Reconnect is a scholarship for adults to earn an associate degree or technical certificate, tuition-free. To be eligible for the Tennessee Reconnect scholarship, you must:
Not already have an associate or bachelor’s degree
Have been a Tennessee resident for at least one year
Be determined as an independent student on the FAFSA
“We are simply doing things differently now, but we are still here to help them in any way possible," said Natalia Williams, coordinator of Adult Student Services. "We want to alleviate the pressure and stressors of college, and this virtual information session is a good opportunity to learn more about all of the resources available to students at Cleveland State."
Ms. Green continued, “We look forward to continue serving Bradley, McMinn, Meigs, Monroe, and Polk County residents by highlighting the many options Cleveland State offers at our three locations in Cleveland, Athens, and Vonore.”
