Pellissippi State offers high-quality, short-term training in the form of certificates. Individual curricula are designed for working students who wish to upgrade their skills or gain additional certification in a particular area. Anyone wishing to pursue a certificate who is not already a Pellissippi State student must apply for admission to the College.
To apply for admission, visit www.pstcc.edu/admissions. On the admission application, choose “Certificate” as the application type and select the appropriate certificate title. Students working on a certificate in conjunction with a Pellissippi State degree program must meet admission requirements for the degree program. The placement test and/or learning support courses are not required of students seeking only a certificate. All courses for a certificate must be taken for credit.
Each prospective candidate for a certificate must file a Graduation Application during the semester preceding the semester of anticipated graduation. To file, the student should choose “Graduation Application” from the menu on the Student Records tab in myPellissippi. Certificates will be ready for pick up six to eight weeks following the end of each semester. Students will be mailed postcards at the address currently on file at Pellissippi State, with the date diplomas will be available. It is imperative that students keep their contact information/ address up to date.
To change address or contact information, contact the Records Office at (865) 694-6564. To pick up a certificate, bring a photo ID to the Pellissippi Campus Admissions and Records Office (Room 102, Goins Building) Monday- Friday 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Students who are unable to pick up their diploma/certificate may authorize someone else to do so, provided that individual presents a photo ID and supplies a note written and signed by the student.
