Adult students may consider Vol State spring classes

Staff Reports • Updated Dec 21, 2017 at 10:00 PM

Spring classes will start soon at Volunteer State Community College, and students are encouraged to apply. 

The college encourages adults to consider taking college classes in the spring as a launch pad for the Tennessee Reconnect program, which begins next fall. 

Tennessee Reconnect will provide tuition-free college classes for Tennessee adults who do not already have an associate’s degree or bachelor’s degree and meet other eligibility requirements. Adults who want to get a head start on going back to college can take classes in the spring and apply for financial aid and scholarships that may reduce costs. The students may then be able to move into the tuition-free program next fall by filling out a Tennessee Reconnect application and following the other program requirements. 

For more information about Tennessee Reconnect, including eligibility for adults and links to apply to the college, visit volstate.edu/reconnect.
