Important College Contacts

Pellissippi State wants to help you start strong, stay strong and finish strong throughout your college journey. We understand that the process can be frustrating and you may not know where to turn for answers. With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of important College contacts to help you on your path to success. 

Due to many employees working remotely, there may be longer wait times on calls or some offices may be unavailable by phone. We encourage you to email when possible. 

Our Start Strong Center is here to help you with any questions you may have about admissions, financial aid, registration and records. Meet with us!
For general inquiries, please call 865-694-6400, email startstrong@sparklemodelscebu.com, visit live chat or text us at 865-270-6400.
