CLEVELAND, Tenn. – Cleveland State Community College will be hosting a variety of Reconnect Information Sessions at all sites throughout the month of June. On Thursday, June 6 from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m., there will be a session in the Enrollment Services Center in the George L. Mathis Student Center on the main campus. On Thursday, June 20, there will be a session at the Athens Center from 4-6 p.m. and one at the Monroe County Center on Thursday, June 27, also from 4-6 p.m.  

Tennessee Reconnect is a scholarship for adults to earn an associate degree or technical certificate, tuition-free. To be eligible for the Tennessee Reconnect scholarship, you must:
            ●          Not already have an associate or bachelor’s degree
            ●          Have been a Tennessee resident for at least one year
            ●          Be determined as an independent student on the FAFSA

During this session, attendees can learn more about the Tennessee Reconnect scholarship that covers eligible adults’ tuition to all programs at CSCC and other affordable educational opportunities, such as Pell grants and the college’s institutional scholarships,

“It is a good opportunity, especially for new adult learners who have never attended college before, to meet their new success coach who will be working with them throughout their first year to alleviate the pressure and stressors of college,” stated Natalia Williams, Coordinator of Adult Student Services. “This is also a good opportunity to sign up and attend orientation whether you are a first-time adult student, transfer, or re-admit student to find out more about our resources that will be available to you as students.”

 According to Williams, other efforts will include applying for admissions, sharing services available to military veterans, and CSCC’s transcript analysts will be on hand to answer students’ questions about transfer credit if students have coursework from another college/university or how to go about requesting their high school transcripts.

Cleveland State has recently added many new and convenient scheduling options that are specifically designed for adult students, such as weekend and evening classes, as well as block scheduling.
