An open house is scheduled for Thursday, November 9, in the atrium of the Coffey-McNally Building at Roane State’s Oak Ridge campus at 701 Briarcliff Avenue.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for prospective Roane State students of all ages to learn about various academic programs, how to enroll, and how to apply for financial aid,” said Jim McDaniel, director of student enrollment.
The program will begin at 6 p.m. Information about curricula, admissions requirements, financial aid, the state’s new Reconnect program, and student life will be displayed on tables. Staff and faculty members will be available to answer questions, a press release said.
Then, from 6:50 to 7:30 p.m., there will be informational sessions for two different audiences—traditional students about to graduate high school, and adult learners seeking to return to college.
Again, Roane State Community College staff members will be on hand to answer questions, the press release said.
Details about the Reconnect program, where adult learners can obtain last-dollar scholarships to attend community colleges tuition-free, will be available. That new statewide program starts in the Fall 2018 semester.
Tours will be available after the formal program concludes, McDaniel said.
For more information, contact McDaniel at (865) 354-3000 ext. 2362, or [email protected].
