posted in: Events, Orientation, Students | 0

Those who have been accepted to attend Pellissippi State Community College for fall semester should make plans now to attend a New Student Orientation session. The sessions are required of all first-time degree-seeking freshmen and are recommended for transfer students.

The sessions give 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.

Pellissippi State encourages parents, spouses and others supportive of the student to attend as well.

Accepted students are urged to reserve their place as soon as possible. Sessions are available June 11-Aug. 23 at various times at all five Pellissippi State campuses.

The application deadline for fall semester is Aug. 14. Classes begin on Aug. 24.
