Register for Fall - Commit to Getting Your Degree

You have a much, much better chance of getting a college degree if you keep going. Statistics show that taking a semester off, and lengthening the time it takes to complete a college degree, often leads to the end of a college career, without a degree. If you're a current Vol State student, it's time to get registered for fall. If you have been out for the while, it's time to make a commitment to return. It only take a few minutes to fill out a readmit application on the Admissions web page. We want to see you succeed!

Here are some more sobering stats. Most community college students take several classes that they don't need for their degree. That also increases the rate of students dropping out of college, because of time and money wasted. It's important to have a clear path through college. That means setting up a degree plan with your advisor and sticking to that plan. We have tools that can help. Check out DegreeWorks on your My Vol State page under academics. It can show you exactly what classes you need to take for your particular degree. But don't use it alone- be sure to see your academic advisor each semester to make sure you are on track.
