Anyone who has considered taking classes at Pellissippi State Community College has two opportunities this October to check out the school – from the academic programs offered to the financial aid available.
Pellissippi State’s open house, now called Pellissippi Preview, will be held in person 9:15-11:15 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 2, at the college’s Hardin Valley Campus, 10915 Hardin Valley Road. An online version will be held 6-7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 20, for those who would rather learn about the college via Zoom.
Pellissippi Preview is open to prospective students of all ages and is free to attend.
Pellissippi State will kick off the Oct. 2 in-person event in the Clayton Performing Arts Center at 9:15 a.m. before letting prospective students browse the departments that interest them until 10:30 a.m. Faculty and staff will be available to answer questions about the college’s academic programs as well as the student services available at Pellissippi State.
Pellissippi Preview also will feature a presentation on academic programs, services and financial aid at 10:30 a.m. Participants will get hands-on information about one of the questions Pellissippi State advisers and recruiters hear the most: “Will my Pellissippi State classes transfer?” They’ll also learn more about scholarship opportunities, including Tennessee Promise for high school seniors.
All those who attend Pellissippi Preview in person will be entered in a drawing for one of two $250 scholarships from the Pellissippi State Foundation. The drawing will be held at 11:15 a.m. to close the event.
“You are sure to get all your questions answered,” said Enrollment Services Coordinator Sarah Davis. “We hope to see you there.”
