Recruiting

Choosing the right college is one of the most important decisions of your life, and Chattanooga State is proud to be considered among your choices. We offer our students a wide range of programs, more than 50 student organizations, numerous athletic events, and an attractive campus.

Our Recruiters provide information you may need to better understand services and opportunities provided by our college. Their primary purpose is to assist prospective students with the admissions process and answer any questions you may have about scholarships and scholarship deadlines, programs of study, and extracurricular activities. Our recruiters provide educational presentations at various events throughout the Chattanooga region including, but not limited to, high school visits, expos, exhibits, and community functions. High school visits include: cafeteria set-ups, classroom visits, assembly presentations and one-on-one meetings with students as requested. The recruiters are in Hamilton County schools and surrounding counties at least two times each month.
