The Stay Strong Multicultural Center, located in the Educational Resources Center (ERC), room 209 on the Hardin Valley Campus, provides a welcoming, supportive space for African American students as they transition into or continue their education at Pellissippi State. Service to traditionally underrepresented, underserved students centers the work of the Multicultural Center. Success coaches work closely with students to support academic planning, study skills and campus engagement. This support is also available for nontraditional students.

Students do not require parking permits. Students can park in any lot designated with an O for Open, and parking is free. Click here for campus maps.
Students may come to any campus during regular hours of operation, without an appointment, to have their picture taken and student ID card made. Bring identification such as a driver’s license to:
- Hardin Valley Campus (Two Locations) – Open Computer Lab (ERC 327) Or Information Technology Desk (GN240)
- Site campuses – Campus Library
Students who are unable to visit one of our campuses in person may use a driver’s license for proctored tests. The College will no longer be sending ID cards through the mail.
