Students who have been accepted to attend Pellissippi State Community College for the spring 2015 semester should make plans now to attend a New Student Orientation session. Two orientation dates include special sessions for international students.
The sessions are required of all first-time degree-seeking freshmen and are recommended for transfer students. Reserve a space as soon as possible.
Orientation gives new enrollees the opportunity to meet with Pellissippi State students, faculty, and staff; learn about what they can expect in college and what the college expects of them; learn strategies for college success; explore degree, major, and transfer options; and discover campus services and resources such as financial aid, tutoring, and computer resources.
New Student Orientation campuses, dates and times:
- Hardin Valley Campus—Dec. 2, 5-8:30 p.m.; Jan. 8, 1-4:30 p.m.; Jan. 16, 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
- Blount County Campus—Jan. 15, 1-3:30 p.m.
- Division Street Campus—Jan. 16, 2-5:30 p.m.
- Magnolia Avenue Campus—Jan. 14, 1-4 p.m.
- Strawberry Plains Campus—Jan. 12, noon-3
The Jan. 16 orientations at the Hardin Valley and Division Street campuses include a special session for international students.
Students can attend any of the New Student Orientation sessions; however, it’s best to attend an event at the campus you will attend. Pellissippi State encourages parents, spouses and others supportive of the student to attend New Student Orientation. The application deadline for spring semester is Jan. 9. Classes begin Jan. 20.
