Navigating the process of going to college for the first time or going back to college may seem overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be – we’re here to help! This website will help you get the basic information you need to start the process. However, you also have access to personalized assistance and advising.
Talk to an Adult Student Contact at your college
Every college and university has an office or individual ready to help you navigate your way back into and through college – look at your college’s Portrait page to find out how to contact them. They can also connect you to campus resources and support systems.
Talk to a TNReconnect Community Advisor
If you don’t know where you want to complete a degree, or you need some additional help in navigating your options, assistance filling out forms, and getting access to tools to help you manage your time as you attend college, you can talk to a TN Reconnect Advisor in your community. To find out if you live in a county that offers this free service, go to the Tennessee Reconnect Community Centers page and find out more about the services offered.
You can reach out to college advisors yourself, or you can make it easy and have them contact you. Create a Student Passport and select an institution and/or a community advisor and someone will contact you to provide guidance and help.
