President’s Message


Welcome to Chattanooga’s Community College, where we make student success our top priority!  The college is here for one reason: to help you succeed.

For more than fifty years, the Chattanooga State faculty and staff have provided high-quality education and workforce training in our community. Our comprehensive community college offers 122 different programs of study, including 76 credit programs and 26 Tennessee College of Applied Technology (TCAT) programs. We take pride that our graduates enjoy a 96% job placement rate and the area’s most affordable tuition. So our students who work hard can expect a great return on their investment.

By becoming a student (and future graduate) at Chattanooga State, you are laying a solid foundation for your future. To further enhance your overall college experience, I encourage you to take advantage of the many opportunities to connect on campus. We want to be sure you receive the support you need to succeed both in and out of the classroom. This is your ChattState experience, and we want it to be amazing!
