ELIZABETHTON, Tenn.—Students at the Tennessee Colleges of Applied Technology will register for classes online for the summer term that begins May 1.
All student functions will be in the new Banner Computer System offering a greatly improved student experience for TCATs– including self-service payment, student records, grading, attendance, financial aid processing, and other key student services, according to Dean Blevins, president of TCAT Elizabethton.
“The next major step in this process starts on the first day of the next term, when TCAT faculty start recording class attendance in Banner”, Blevins said.
Online student registration, financial aid services and payment for the entire TCAT system launched April 9 with the Banner System, which has been used at Tennessee’s community colleges for several years.
As of April 17, more than 5,000 students have registered online. The upgraded services for TCAT students is part of a larger Shared Services initiative at the College System of Tennessee.
It includes administration of several business office functions for the colleges – such as payroll processing, accounting and budgeting and procurement through a Shared Services Center at the Tennessee Board of Regents system office.
“Faculty will assist students as they register online for classes beginning May 1,” Blevins said.
More than 900 students attend TCAT Elizabethton each trimester at the Main Campus, located at 426 Highway 91 north and the Arney Street
extension campus, 1500 Arney Street, both in Elizabethton, and on the ETSU at Kingsport campus, 1501 University Blvd., Kingsport.
