Hello eLearn Student!
Thank you for your interest in Volunteer State Community College. Vol State is excited to provide online courses giving you the opportunity to continue or complete your education at a time that is convenient for your individual schedule.

Log into your online course(s) the first day of the semester:
If you are enrolled in a Hybrid course, the online portion of your course begins the first day of the semester, even if you do not meet on-campus the first day.
How to Go To Class:
In your My Vol State account, click on the Online Classes icon to access your Vol State Online and/or Hybrid course(s). Each course is listed by semester on the eLearn homepage. Carefully read the entire syllabus (found in Content for each course) to ensure you are aware of all course requirements, policies, and deadlines. Special Note: *eLearn Course Mail is NOT your Vol State student Gmail account. This is an internal email account inside the eLearn system to communicate only with your instructor and classmates. An additional login may be required for software accompanying the course(s) you are taking. Check the course syllabus for specific details.

Where to Buy Books:
You can purchase books at the following locations:

• Gallatin Campus Bookstore (check website for operating hours https://www.volstate.edu/bookstore) • Cookeville Campus Bookstore (call 931-520-0551 for operating hours) • Highland Crest Campus Bookstore (Mon - Fri from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.) • Livingston Campus Bookstore (call 931-823-7065 for operating hours)
Some courses include a digital textbook (e-text) in your tuition price. If you register for a course with this option, you will receive an email prior to the start of the semester with more information and an option to opt-out if you prefer to purchase a hard-copy book. Contact the Bookstore for more information.

Useful Information: You must have reliable internet access and a functioning computer in order to use eLearn, or to complete an online class. You are welcome to use the Library computer labs as well!

Logging In: You cannot log into your course(s) until the published date that the semester begins. Please see the “How to Go to Class” instructions for specific details.

Remember, when you are taking a Hybrid course, the online portion of the course starts the first day of the semester and you may not meet face-to-face until a later date. Check your “Concise Student Schedule” (found on your Pride Online tab in your My Vol State account) for exact meeting dates and times.

Attendance Reporting: Check the course syllabus (found in the Content link) for the attendance requirements and how attendance will be reported. Also, if you are receiving financial aid your attendance can impact your financial aid status and eligibility.

Proctored Exams: Most online courses require the Mid-term Exam and/or Final Exam to be taken as a proctored (supervised) exam in our Testing Center. Please check each course syllabus to determine if/ when the Mid-Term Exam and/or Final Exam must be proctored. Schedule a testing appointment at your desired campus on the Testing Center website (https://www.volstate.edu/testing).

Important Resources: Your instructor is your best resource when you need assistance! Be sure to communicate regularly throughout the semester. Read your entire syllabus the first day and refer to it often throughout the semester to know every requirement, policy, and deadline. The Learning Commons also offers assistance with online courses. Visit the Learning Commons in the Thigpen building, room 125. Find additional assistance here: https://www.volstate.edu/collegesuccess.
