    I would say that Pellissippi is one of the best value colleges around. You get equal if not better academics and a wonderful learning environment for a portion of the cost of a four-year university.

    This is as affordable as college gets!!! You miss out on some 4-year school stuff, like living on campus and research opportunities on campus, but you still get far more than what you pay for because it's so affordable compared to other schools.

    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!
