MOORE COUNTY — If you are considering registering for the Motlow State fall semester, college officials want you to focus on two words … simple and free. Applying to take classes is both incredibly simple and absolutely free.

Motlow State strives to be an engine that helps drive the economy of Moore County and Middle Tennessee. Despite the medical and social challenges of spring and summer, the time is now for action in preparation for fall. Whether you are in high school, a recent high school graduate, an adult without a degree, or looking to upgrade your work skills, Motlow has a program to fit your needs and your lifestyle, they said in a press release.

“We are asking our Middle Tennessee communities to help us spread this important message,” said Vice-President of External Affairs Terri Bryson. “The Financial Aid priority deadline is July 15, and students can best ensure their paperwork will be processed and approved by the start of fall classes by beginning the process now. Simple and free is our message. Most of our students attend tuition-free through the dual enrollment program, Tennessee Promise, and Tennessee Reconnect. There has never been a better time to enroll at Motlow.”

According to Motlow officials, fall plans include a mixture of on-campus, online, and blended courses; social distancing and mask-wearing guidelines on campus; a robust cleaning schedule for all facilities; daily health check-ins; and free online tutoring and online placement testing.

Classes will begin on August 24 and originally planned and end on December 4 with final exams beginning the next day, December 5.
