CSCC plans Reconnect Information Sessions


Cleveland State Community College will be hosting Reconnect Information Sessions on Thursday, Feb. 8, from 4 to 6 p.m., in the Enrollment Services Center located in Suite 117 of the George L. Mathis Student Center. A session will be held on Saturday, March 3, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m, at CSCC. There will also be a session at the CSCC Athens Center on Thursday, Feb. 22, from 5 to 7 p.m.
Starting in the fall of 2018, 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 these sessions, 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, but the effort is more than just promoting the new scholarship program,” said Natalia Williams, coordinator of Adult Student Services. “It includes addressing questions adult learners may have, from receiving credit for work experience to the uncertainty of returning to a school environment.”

According to Williams, other efforts will include applying for admissions, sharing services available to military veterans, and CSCC’s transcript analyst will be on hand to answer students’ questions about transfer credit if they have coursework from another college/university or how to go about requesting their high school transcripts.
If weather permits, students will also be able to tour the campus. Participants are encouraged to park in the L. Quentin Lane Gymnasium and follow the signs to the George L. Mathis Student Center.
