Pellissippi State invites prospective students to check out campus April 6

Anyone who has considered taking classes at Pellissippi State Community College has an opportunity next week to check out the school – from the academic programs offered to the financial aid available.

Pellissippi State’s spring open house, now called Pellissippi Preview, will be held 9-11 a.m. Saturday, April 6, on the college’s Hardin Valley Campus, 10915 Hardin Valley Road.

Pellissippi Preview is open to prospective students of all ages, noted Enrollment Services Coordinator Debra Benedict.

“This is a fun way to get on campus and see everything we have to offer – not just our academic programs, but our services as well, from advising to financial aid,” she said.

Pellissippi Preview will kick off with a program showcase in the Goins Building College Center. Participants will be able to find out more about the academic programs that interest them and the student services that are available at Pellissippi State.

Pellissippi Preview also will feature two presentations: one on transferring from Pellissippi State to four-year colleges and universities and one on financial aid. Participants will get hands-on information about one of the questions Pellissippi State staff hear the most – “Will my Pellissippi State classes transfer?”  They also will learn more about scholarship opportunities, including Tennessee Promise for high school seniors and Tennessee Reconnect for adult learners.

All those who attend Pellissippi Preview will be entered in a drawing for one of two $250 scholarships from the Pellissippi State Foundation to attend Pellissippi State; winners will be contacted at a later date.
