The open house is free, but interested students should RSVP at www.pstcc.edu/reconnect.
“This spring, Governor Haslam introduced his plan to expand the Tennessee Reconnect grant to give more adults the opportunity to attend college in the 2018-2019 academic year,” said Pellissippi State President L. Anthony Wise Jr. “We applaud that idea, but wanted to find a way for adult learners to get started right away.
“Through Reconnect Now, Pellissippi State will cover the costs of tuition and mandatory fees for qualified adult students in order to open the doors of higher education to everyone,” he added.
To qualify for the scholarship, students must qualify as an independent on the FAFSA and can’t have previously earned a college degree.
