Spring classes start soon at Volunteer State Community College and students should apply now. The College is encouraging adults to consider taking college classes this spring, as a launch pad for the TN Reconnect program which begins in the fall of 2018. TN 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 this spring and apply for financial aid and scholarships that may reduce costs. Those students may then be able to move into the tuition-free program starting in the fall, by simply filling out a TN Reconnect application and following the other program requirements. For more information about TN Reconnect, including eligibility for adults, and links to apply to the college, visit www.volstate.edu/reconnect.
Health Sciences has a new class starting this spring: AHC 2312, Contemporary Issues in Healthcare. Fire Science will be offering, for the first time, FIRE 2315, Introduction to Homeland Security and Disaster Management. Students who enjoy debate can register for the Vol State Forensic Program. It’s an intercollegiate, competitive travel team for individual events and Parliamentary debate. It includes an on-campus, non-traveling Parliamentary debate team, as well. Interested students should contact Karen.firstname.lastname@example.org.
