Registration Open Now for Fall Classes at Highland Crest

Vol State at Highland CrestRegistration is open now for the fall semester at Volunteer State Community College at Highland Crest in Springfield. New students will need to apply to the college first. There will be more than 80 classes at Highland Crest this fall, including day and evening offerings. Learning Support classes help new students get up to speed in math, English and reading. Online courses make hundreds of other Vol State classes available to students.

A big priority at Vol State is making sure that students stay on track and take the courses they need for their degree and university transfer. Doing so can save students both time and money. Vol State staff members offer these suggestions for students. The first is to meet regularly with their academic advisor. Students are assigned an academic advisor when they apply to the college and go through orientation. The second suggestion is to use an online tool called DegreeWorks. It’s free and available to all students on their My Vol State web page. It shows a student exactly what classes they need to take for their particular degree path. The final suggestion is to map out their college career. If students plan to transfer to a university they will want to pick that university and major as soon as possible, to make sure that they take the courses at Vol State that will apply to their four-year degree. One way to guarantee that is to use what are called Tennessee Transfer Pathways. The pathways provide a road map of classes for students from Vol State to specific academic programs at state four-year schools. For a complete list visit the Vol State website at www.volstate.edu/pathways.

Classes start August 25. New and readmit students will need to apply to the college before they can register for classes. Applications can be filled out online at www.volstate.edu or in person at the Highland Crest campus. The College is located at 150 Laureate Avenue, just south of NorthCrest Medical Center, off of Highway 431 and William Batson Parkway.
