Pellissippi Preview gives prospective students an opportunity to check out Pellissippi State Community College’s Hardin Valley Campus, explore programs they may want to study and get answers to their questions about financial aid and what classes will transfer to four-year institutions.

Anyone who has considered taking classes at Pellissippi State has an opportunity next week to check out the school – from the academic programs offered to the financial aid available.

Pellissippi State’s open house, now called Pellissippi Preview, will be held 9:15 a.m.-noon Saturday, Sept. 28, at 10915 Hardin Valley Road.

Pellissippi Preview is open to prospective students of all ages and is free to attend.

Pellissippi State will kick off the event in the Clayton Performing Arts Center at 9:15 a.m. before letting prospective students explore the departments that interest them until 10:45 a.m. Faculty and staff will be available to answer questions about the college’s academic programs as well as the student services available at Pellissippi State.

Pellissippi Preview also will feature two short presentations: one on transferring from Pellissippi State to four-year colleges and universities at 10:45 a.m. and one on financial aid at 11:25 a.m. Participants will get hands-on information about one of the questions Pellissippi State advisers and recruiters hear the most: “Will my Pellissippi State classes transfer?” They’ll also learn more about scholarship opportunities, including Tennessee Promise for high school seniors.

All those who attend will be entered in a drawing for one of two $250 scholarships from the Pellissippi State Foundation to attend Pellissippi State. The drawing will be held at 11:50 a.m. to close the event. Info or to RSVP, visit
