Founded in 1965, Chattanooga State is an accredited public community college in the College System of Tennessee serving Hamilton, Marion, Grundy, Rhea, Bledsoe, and Sequatchie counties at three instructional sites. With an annual economic impact of $169 million, a five-year average of 96% job placement, and a low 16:1 student-to-teacher ratio, Chattanooga State’s 150+ programs of study lead to AA, AS, and AAS degrees, along with technical or embedded certificates and credentials from the Tennessee College of Applied Technology, which are obtainable in one year or less. Strong corporate training programs provide highly trained, skilled, technical workforce solutions for business and industry needs. Early College program options provide students with opportunities to earn their high school degree while completing an associate degree sooner. Tennessee Promise, Tennessee Reconnect, Wilder-Naifeh, HOPE, and other options can help students attend tuition-free.
