Want to finish your degree in Nashville? Check out the Reconnect Cafés!

Thinking about going back to college? Get free support and navigation at the Reconnect Café!

Middle Tennessee Reconnect Cafés are located on the White Bridge Rd, Southeast and East Davidson Campuses of Nashville State Community College. Any current student of NSCC or TCAT Nashville, as well as any Davidson County resident, is eligible for free navigation services from our staff. This service is part of the Middle Tennessee Reconnect Community which is dedicated to helping adults in Middle Tennessee get a degree or credential for the first time.

Laura Ward, as well as Tennessee Reconnect Navigators, can help you with:

  • Career choices
  • Connection to resources
  • Questions about going to school
  • Overcoming barriers to getting registered for college

Laura can guide you through the process of applying for college, whether you want to attend Nashville State Community College, TCAT Nashville, or another area school. Current students are also welcome to drop in for free support too!

Attending school for the first time is not easy. Roadblocks pop up and sometimes you need a little extra support to find the right person to talk with and find a solution to a problem. We hope you will visit the Reconnect Cafe, meet the staff and use the free resources available to you to help you get “to-and-through” your degree program.
