Fall 2022 Update

We're so excited for the Fall semester. Be sure to check out the many things we have to offer here so that you are ready to go!

Tips to Help You Meet Your Goals

Here are a few tips from a recent ChattState graduate to help you meet your goals. 

  1. Know how to use eLearn, check out the our How-To videos on YouTube, especially the eLearn video. You will use eLearn for all your classes and you need to be comfortable navigating the site.  

  2. Get your student ID and parking pass in the Student Center. You need your ID to check out books at the Library, to participate in some campus activities, for the Testing Center and more.

  3. We have a lot of construction going on, which is great! But it also means parking lots and sidewalks may be fenced off. Be sure you give yourself plenty of time to find parking every day.

  4. Use the free resources! Know where the Math Center and the Reading and Writing Centers are and how to use them. Utilize the free tutoring, the Library, and the Student Support Center for assistance from day 1. There is no shame in asking for help, you are here to learn and we want you to succeed. Be sure you communicate with your instructors and let them know how you’re doing.

  5. Check your @my.chattanoogastate.edu email regularly, that’s how the College communicates with you and is different than your eLearn communication with your instructors. You can login from outlook.office.com.  

    We hope you are excited about the semester! Remember to participate in campus activities, ask for help when you need it, make new friends, and have fun! 

Instructional Plan


virtual class iconVirtual courses are held online at a scheduled time. Virtual course students won’t come to campus to take their class. Instead, they will simply log into the course online at the time specified for class to begin. Courses will use a video conferencing service such as Microsoft Teams, Zoom, or WebEx to deliver live, in-real-time, instruction. Specific class dates and times can be chosen by students in advance from the course schedule.


online class iconOnline courses do not meet on a certain day or at a certain time. They are taught completely through the Chattanooga State learning management system (LMS) and can be viewed any time after the instructor has posted them. Simply log in, receive instruction, and work at any time.


hybrid class iconHybrid courses will be taught part Online or Virtual, and part on-campus. The on-campus instruction will be limited primarily to programs that require a strong hands-on component that cannot be delivered in a virtual environment. Dates for on-campus instruction will be listed in the course's syllabus or learning management system.
