Welcome to Pellissippi State!

New Student Orientation is required for all degree-seeking students entering Pellissippi State.

There are two ways to meet your orientation requirement:

An online orientation is available for students pursuing an online degree. This orientation is also a good choice for students transferring into Pellissippi State who are in good standing at their previous institution.
