The college’s original campus, located at 3435 Division Street in Knoxville, will hold an open house 5-7 p.m. Thursday, March 31. Those who attend the Pellissippi Preview will have an opportunity to tour the campus, meet with faculty, learn about the degree programs offered and student resources available, and complete an application right on site.
There is no cost to attend, and Pellissippi State never charges prospective students an application fee.
“Pellissippi Preview is an opportunity to let Knoxville citizens know that the Division Street Campus has new program offerings,” said Esther Dyer, dean of the Division Street Campus. “We are looking forward to fall 2022, and we hope to interest a new group of students to join us on their academic journey.”
Pellissippi State’s Division Street Campus was the college’s first location when it was founded in 1974 as State Technical Institute at Knoxville. The Division Street Campus serves 436 Pellissippi State students this semester as well as members of Knoxville’s Latino community through its on-site partnership with Centro Hispano of East Tennessee.
In addition to general education courses that are required for Pellissippi State’s two-year career programs and transfer pathways to four-year universities, Division Street also offers three Associate of Applied Science degrees that can be earned completely on site: Paralegal Studies, Criminal Justice, and Business with a concentration in Entrepreneurship.
