Chattanooga State Community College has planned an immediate response to help students displaced by the closing of Virginia College. Affected students may attend an Information Session on Monday, December 10 at 5:30 p.m. in the Instructional Materials Center (IMC/Library), room 124. 

According to Chad Jaynes, manager of technical training, Chattanooga State’s information sessions are critical to these students who are experiencing the trauma associated with their school closing without warning.

Monday’s information session will be led by Marsha Barker, director of adult services. Reed Allison, director of financial aid, also will be on hand to answer questions about financial aid. Between now and Monday, students may visit the Federal Student Aid website to learn more about what to do when a school closes. The site provides tips on transferring to another school, obtaining academic transcripts, more about federal student loans, and how to contact your loan servicer for assistance.

“We want to create a sense of welcome and give students any help they need to continue and/or complete their education,” stated Jaynes.

Students may sign up for the December 10 information session at www.chattanoogastate.edu/tnreconnect or call (423) 697-3346 with questions.
