Nashville State Announces On-campus Classes Returning for Fall Semester


Nashville State Community College is returning to a more traditional class schedule for the Fall 2021 semester while continuing to provide online, virtual, and hybrid options.

“Nashville State is planning for a responsible return to campus,” said Dr. Carol Rothstein, vice president of Academic Affairs. “We are excited to welcome students back to campus and will continue to provide a variety of course delivery formats to meet student needs.”

The College’s COVID-19 Response Planning Task Force has been using its Responsible Return to Campus Phase Plan as the guide throughout the pandemic, which is based on federal, state, and local rules, and will continue to do so.

“The safety of our students, faculty, staff, and college community remains my top priority,” said Dr. Shanna L. Jackson, Nashville State president. “We will continue to monitor and adjust throughout the summer to ensure the appropriate safety protocols are in place when the campus re-opens for fall on-ground classes and services to students.”

Registration for summer and fall semesters opens on Monday, April 5. The free application and registration can be completed online.

All Nashville State campuses, except East Davidson which remains virtual, are providing in-person, walk-in enrollment and financial aid assistance on specific dates.
