Study a Language at Vol State - Get Ahead in Your Career

The global economy is spurring much of the demand. You can increase your chance of getting hired for a competitive job and make more money than workers who only speak one language. Visit our website for details on the foreign language classes we are offering this fall: www.volstate.edu/schedule

Your Classes and Financial Aid


The Federal Government has developed a policy to ensure students enroll only in courses needed to complete their chosen program of study. Because of this policy some students will receive emails sent to their Vol State email account alerting them to a problem with the courses they are currently enrolled in for Fall 2018. Please check your Vol State email immediately to see if you have received this email.
If you receive this email, and you are receiving or pursuing financial aid, you will need to:
-Contact your assigned advisor right away.
-You can find out your assigned advisor on My Vol State under the Academics tab.
-If you can’t reach your assigned advisor call the Advising Center at 615-230-3702.
Failure to do so could will affect your financial aid funding.
Students not receiving financial aid should still contact their advisor to see if a major change or some other change should be made to their schedule.

Fast growing profession: Dental Assisting

Bite into a new career as a dental assistant through Vol State. The median salary is more than $37,000 a year and there is an expected job growth of 19 percent. That makes it one of the fastest growing professions in the nation. Vol State can provide you the training and education you need with a one-year technical certificate program. Adult students without a degree (TN Reconnect) and graduating high school seniors (TN Promise) may be able to take the program tuition-free. Either way, Vol State tuition is much more competitive than most private programs. We teach students both digital and film x-ray techniques. That gives them the skills to use whatever technology they find in a dental office. That experience helps Vol State students get jobs.
We’re taking applications today. Visit: www.volstate.edu/DentalAssistant
