Roane State to host Application Days for Fall 2021

UPPER CUMBERLAND – Roane State’s student enrollment team, along with site directors at each of the community college’s nine campuses, will be hosting Application Days beginning the week of July 12, 2021.

The events are aimed at students who still need to submit their application or complete application requirements for admission ahead of the fall semester. The priority deadline for students to complete their Fall 2021 admission file is Aug. 1. Registration is also open now and will be available through Aug. 17. The first day of fall classes is Aug. 18.

“We want students to know it’s not too late to apply for fall and get the schedule they want at Roane State,” said Dr. Jamie Stringer, the college’s Vice President of Student Services and Innovation. “We are here to help both new and returning students overcome any challenges they may be facing so they can achieve their educational goals successfully.”

Each of Roane State’s campuses will host an event to help local students get started. College representatives will be on hand to answer questions students or their families have about attending Roane State. The dates, times and locations of the events are as follows:

Roane State offers online, in-person and hybrid courses with flexible scheduling options. Earlier this summer, the college announced plans for Fall 2021 that included additional courses for those who prefer to be on campus instead of learning remotely.

Following CDC guidance, Roane State has removed its face covering requirement for those who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Additionally, students, employees and visitors are no longer required to complete a daily wellness screening before coming to campus. Other safety measures taken as a result of the pandemic remain in place this fall, including physical distancing, enhanced cleaning of facilities, COVID-19 case reporting and contact tracing.
