Making changes to your schedule? Here are some tips:
Students will be able to drop and add classes through My Vol State until the end of the day Tuesday, August 25th.
Beginning on Wednesday, August 26th, you can still drop classes online but you will need to submit a signed DROP/ADD/WITHDRAWAL FORM to add full-term classes. (You will be able to add second seven weeks, second five week, and third five-week classes online.)
Students will continue to be able to drop classes online until the end of the day Friday, August 28th.

Haven't registered yet for fall classes? They start August 24. We still have classes open and if you were a student last spring or this summer you can register now. But you need to get moving. If you need help contact Advising at 615-230-3702 or visit them in the Ramer Building Room 174 in Gallatin or at Livingston, Highland and Cookeville campuses. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Vol State Offers Wireless Computer Certification Prep
Wireless Internet use is overtaking desktop computing in many ways. Recently Google announced that it had more wireless device searches than PC based searches for the first time. Volunteer State Community College is responding to the demand for employees trained in wireless with a new Wireless Networks course this fall. It’s designed to prepare students to sit for the Mobility + certification exam.

Fall class fees are due today. There are several ways to pay, including online, over the phone and in person. TN Promise students don't need to worry about this deadline, or folks that know they have enough Financial Aid to cover their class fees. Here's more info on today's deadline, and several other important dates: http://bit.ly/1HtjjUi

Vol State fees for fall classes are due on August 13. If you don't pay by that date, you are in danger of being dropped from the classes you have signed up for. We don't want that to happen, so there are plenty of ways to pay what you owe. We even have deferred payment programs. Go here for details on both: http://www.volstate.edu/BusinessOffice/
Approved TN Promise students don't have to worry about that date. You will be covered. It may not show up in your My Vol State account for a while, but you will be covered for the fees you owe.
Other financial aid students need to see what they were set to get for financial aid in the eligibility letter and compare it to what they owe in their My Vol State account. Financial Aid won't show up in your account until the 14th. But don't worry, if you have the money coming you will be fine. If you have excess funds that will also show up. Refunds for excess funds come after the first week of classes...but you have to show up to all of your classes to get it.
If you have questions, you can contact the Business Office at 615-230-3585.
One final thing: August 15-19 are the Vol State Bookstore charge days for eligible financial aid students. This allows financial aid students to get books from the Vol State Bookstore before they get their excess funds checks. You will get an email by August 15 in your Vol State email if you are eligible. You can order in-store or online at www.vcssshop.com. If ordering on line, when asked for an account number, use your Vol State "V" number including the V.

Student bills are being sent out via email each Friday until the fee due date on August 13th. Please keep in mind that Financial Aid and TN Promise scholarships may not be applied to your student account before bills are sent out. Financial Aid awards and scholarships for those who are approved will be posted by August 12th.

Returning students - it's time to register for fall classes. If you take a semester off it is very likely that you will never return to college. Sound harsh? That's the result of surveys. Keep going this fall, even if you just take a class or two. Why do we care? We measure success by you getting a degree and then getting a job. We're here to help you do that. Call or visit the Advising Center if you are having problems. In Ramer 174 and the front desks at Livingston and Highland, or call 615-230-3702.
