Pellissippi State hosts two summer New Student Orientation sessions

posted in: Events, Orientation, Students | 0

Summer semester begins at Pellissippi State Community College the end of this month, and those who plan to attend should reserve a spot in New Student Orientation. Only two sessions are offered, so accepted students are urged to save their space as soon as possible.

Orientation is required of all first-time degree-seeking freshmen. It is also recommended for transfer students and those who have been out of school for a while. Pellissippi State encourages parents, spouses and others supportive of the students to attend as well.

The sessions give new enrollees the opportunity to meet with Pellissippi State students, faculty, and staff; learn strategies for college success; explore degree, major, and transfer options; and discover campus services and resources such as financial aid. Summer orientation sessions are geared specifically to helping ensure students’ success in the faster-paced classes of summer term.

Both New Student Orientation sessions for summer take place in the Goins Building Auditorium at Pellissippi State’s Hardin Valley Campus. The dates and times are Tuesday, May 21, 5:30-8:30 p.m. or Friday, May 24, 9-noon.

Prospective students need to keep in mind that summer classes often fill early. Other key dates to remember:

  • May 20—application deadline
  • May 21—entrance testing (if applicable) deadline
  • May 23—registration deadline
  • May 28—first day of classes (end of classes: July 24)
