    Main Campus and extension campuses for a student's convenience. Also less expensive than a four year college with transfer options to a four year college.

    Pellissippi is a relatively affordable school, and the quality one gets for what one pays is outstanding. I feel as if I have gained more than just an education at Pellissippi. Community is the perfect word to describe this school. I not only have met life-long friends, but have also found a family of sorts. The quality of the classes and the experience a prospective student would have there are worth so much!
