College Business Hours for the Next Few Weeks and Important Dates for Spring

We know that many people are getting ready for the spring semester, which starts on January 16. The college will be closed during the holidays, and so we wanted to let you know when we will be open. A reminder: you can always apply online at www.volstate.edu/admissions.  Current students can register online on the My Vol State page. This can occur at any time during the holiday weeks when the Vol State campuses are closed.

Here is the holiday schedule for the college:

We are open for normal business hours every weekday through and including Friday, December 20.

The college will be closed to the public from December 21 through January 1. Offices will be back open for normal business starting January 2.

There is only one other closing date before the semester begins. The college will be closed on Thursday, January 9 for professional development.

If you need Admissions, Advising, Business Office, Records or Financial Aid help (just to name a few) please keep these hours in mind.

We want to help everyone get going for spring semester. If you need help, please don’t hesitate to ask. Visit any of our three campuses (Gallatin, Springfield or Livingston) or give us a call. The Gallatin campus can help for McGavock or other off-campus sites.

Spring fees are due on January 7, 2014.

A $25 Late Registration Fee is charged beginning January 16, 2014.

The Business Office will begin processing financial aid refunds to students on January 17, 2014.  Students must meet the attendance requirements before the excess aid is refunded.  Refunds will be issued to either the Discover debit card, by check or as direct deposit. Students that opted-out of the debit card and are not set-up for direct deposit will receive their refund check in the mail. 

The Business Office will begin processing regular student refunds for spring on February 3, 2014.

Students dropping classes beginning January 16 may be dropping in a refund period.  See chart link below.  In drop/adds Regents Online Degree Program (RODP) courses do not swap evenly with regular VSCC courses.
