CLEVELAND, Tenn. -  Cleveland State Community College is giving more opportunities for adult-focused degree options for non-traditional students. The college will be hosting a virtual Reconnect Information Session on Tuesday, May 3, 2022 at 12 and 6 p.m. This event is open to the public to learn about Admissions, Financial Aid, TN Reconnect, Advance Business, and Student Support Services.

Cleveland State Community College is proud to be able to provide our local community with easy access to information about Tennessee Reconnect by offering virtual information sessions,” stated Natalia Williams, Adult Student Services and FYS Adjunct Instructor at CSCC. “The Tennessee Reconnect Grant also provides adult students, 24 years or older, a wonderful opportunity to attend CSCC tuition-free and with an extra layer of additional support they will need throughout their college experience.”

During the upcoming sessions, attendees can learn more about the Tennessee Reconnect scholarship that covers eligible adults’ tuition to all programs at Cleveland State Community College and other affordable educational opportunities, such as Pell grants and the college’s institutional scholarships. Frequent questions by adult learners will be addressed, from receiving credit for work experience to the uncertainty of returning to a school environment.
