Congratulations on your decision to attend Chattanooga State Community College. Chattanooga State has been providing high quality education in our community for over 50 years, and I am so pleased that you are now part of the Chattanooga State tradition of excellence.

At Chattanooga State, you will experience excellence in education that will prepare you either for transferring to a four-year university if you complete a transfer degree program or for entering the workforce if you complete one of our AAS degrees. The job placement rate for students is 96%, which attests to the quality of our programs. You can even earn a one-year certificate that leads to an in-demand job through our hands-on technical programs.

In addition to quality instruction, you will find a supportive environment both in and out of the classroom. Our faculty members love to teach and are dedicated to your success. The out-of-class support you will receive from our professional staff complements your quality classroom instruction. We are here to partner with you to help you meet your educational and career goals.

So, welcome to Chattanooga State! I hope to see you on campus.
