Welcome to Volunteer State Community College. I trust you will find all the information you need here on our website. If not, I invite you to call us at 615-230-3688, or better yet stop by one of our campuses in Gallatin, Springfield, or Livingston.
A recent graduate of Vol State said, “It is great to have a dream, but achieving your dream is awesome!” We are here to help you achieve your goals and fulfill your aspirations.
At Vol State you will find a world-class faculty that provides high quality, innovative instruction. A caring and efficient staff is here to help guide you through the processes of admission, registration, and obtaining financial aid. A vibrant campus life of clubs, organizations and sports will enrich your experience.
Vol State is your most convenient and cost-effective choice for an excellent educational experience. We offer traditional on-ground classes at a variety of locations and any-time, any-place, online classes. We also offer “blended” classes that provide scheduled times for personal interaction with instructors and classmates combined with the convenience of on-line learning.
Volunteer State is an exciting, energizing community of learners. We invite you to join us to acquire the knowledge and skills you want and need. Your goal may be immediate entry or advancement in the workplace. We offer short-term certificates and two-year Associates Degrees. You may be seeking the first two years of a four-year degree. The new Tennessee Transfer Pathways guarantee a seamless transfer. Or you may just be looking for new experiences and knowledge that will enrich your life. Whatever your purpose, we are here to partner with you. Student success is our number one goal!
