2019-2020 Catalog & Student Handbook

Thank you for viewing the Cleveland State Community College Catalog. If you are viewing this catalog as a prospective student, we hope that it provides a good understanding of our campus, academic programs and the many services designed to help you succeed. This one-stop-shop for information, along with the counsel of your success coach, will help you get a great start at Cleveland State.

If you are a returning or continuing student, you already know how important this catalog is for planning your academic program and understanding campus policies and support services. We are happy you are back with us, and we look forward to helping you complete your degree or certificate program.

We have been serving Southeast Tennessee for over 52 years; providing opportunities for everyone who wants a quality education and a great career. On top of that, CSCC is fully engaged with the Tennessee Promise and Reconnect Scholarship programs to ensure great value.

Did you know that CSCC is the #1 choice of high school graduates in our service area (Bradley, McMinn, Meigs, Monroe and Polk counties)? More high school grads from these counties attend Cleveland State than any other college or university.

Cleveland State is also a great place for adult learners. Students 25 years and older make up one-fourth of our campus population, and they find a comfortable environment here.

Last, but not least, did you know that in Tennessee graduates of two-year colleges are making a higher first-year salary on average than graduates of four-year colleges? How can you beat this combination: quality academics, best price and good paying jobs - all in your own back yard? We thank you for making the smart college choice! Have a great year!
