Tips for New Students

We're getting ready for Spring Semester at Vol State. Classes start January 17. Here are some tips for new students:
-Double check your schedule to make sure you are taking the classes you think you are taking. If you see TBD listed as a location or time, and you have double checked recently in My Vol State and it still says that- you could be signed up for an online class. Nothing wrong with that if it is what you intended.
-Also check to make sure you didn't sign up for another campus without realizing it. CHEC-Cookeville, Highland and Livingston are campuses, not buildings in Gallatin.
-Print up a copy of the Gallatin campus map to spot your classes ahead of time. Print it to take with you for your first week of classes.
-Give yourself an extra half-hour or so the first week of classes to find your favorite parking place and your best route to class.
-Use the back entrance to the Gallatin campus off Greenlea, it's much less congested. Parking in those back lots is also easier.
-The Financial Aid Office moved to the Ramer Building over the holidays. Look for the signs in the main lobby of Ramer.
