Vol State Enrollment Breaks Record in Cookeville

Vol State Cookeville student registration has reached a record high for all community college enrollment at the Cookeville Higher Education Campus (CHEC). There are 1031 students enrolled for the fall semester. The previous high for community college enrollment was 903 in fall of 2015. Vol State has been adding some popular courses, including Microbiology, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and Mechatronics.

“Things are going exceedingly well. It’s because of the help of civic organizations, education partners and workforce partners in getting the word out,” said Michael Torrence, assistant vice president for Academic Affairs. “They have been behind us. It’s why our enrollment has spiked. It’s pretty exciting,”

More students creates the need for more classes. “We’ve been adding multiple sections of courses, including more in the evening. That’s a good indicator of the popularity of our program,” Torrence said.

Vol State offers classes at CHEC through a partnership with Tennessee Tech University. CHEC is located at 1000 Neal Street in Cookeville. 

Congrats to everyone in Cookeville and on the main campus for making this happen. And a special kudos to our new Vol State in Cookeville director, Lori Richards.
