Motlow builds a bridge for students who are not ready to jump into a university lifestyle. It gives students time to learn how to study and make new friends in a smaller environment, and then they can move to a larger school and be 100% ready for it! Plus, the class sizes are small enough to have a one-on-one relationship with your professors for a low cost!

Becca - 11/11/2019

It’s a small campus so everyone knows everyone. We communicate and learn from each other. We help each other out where we can and never degrade anyone for trying. The teachers are helpful through messaging or office hours and always willing to help out.

Chandler - 07/04/2019

It was a great 2 year experience. I appreciate the fact that I had TN Promise to help me. Motlow was extremely helpful and always available if I had questions about my major. It prepared me for a four year college and if I could do it all again I would !

Alyssa - 06/19/2019

I attended Motlow State Community College every day of my senior year in high school. I was participating in a Duel Enrollment program that allowed me to earn 41 college credits, most of which came from Motlow. Personally, I enjoyed simple layout of the campus and small classroom sizes. The buildings are kept very clean. The professors vary a lot, but the majority of them are very kind and eager to help you pass their class if you simply take the time to ask.

Motlow State Community College FAQS

  1. What is the Acceptance Rate at Motlow State Community College?

    The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Motlow State Community College is 100%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    Naturally, as most people would start, I would say that it is important to study as hard as you can, to really focus on making the grade, to be sure to make time for community service, and to start filling out scholarship applications as early as possible. And, naturally, as most high school students would do, the old me would brush aside any and all advice that anybody (including myself) would give him. See, while hindsight is always 20/20, nobody can really see anything for themselves in the future tense that isn't biased by what they want and what they fear. My foresight and performance was always cripplingly biased by my high school philosophy of "a person's potential is what they *could* do, it's what they actually do, because, left to their own devices, what they actually do is all that will ever get done." This meant to me that if I'm too lazy to study harder, that means I won't study harder, and therefore the advice to study harder is invalid. I guess, then, I would try to convince the old me that motivation comes from the inside and is one's potential.

  5. Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

    I attend the Smyrna campus, and do not veiw it so much as unique. It is a college I chose for financial reasons. It is an extremely small campus with not a whole lot of options at this particular college. It is great for those who would like to be an RN, because they have a 2-year RN program, but it is very competitive. In addition, it is a good place to get prerequisites out of the way in order to transfer to a university.

    The library is the best, you always have a comfortable place to go and an open computer for research. The second best place is the Student Affairs office. They treat you so much better then the other departments; so if you need anything done go there and they will help you through it.

  7. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    Sometimes it feels like a continuation of high school. The small atmosphere, while most days is a good thing, can also feel like you are still in high school. You see many of the same people you went to high school with, which some days can be a negative.

    I like going to Motlow because it is smaller classroom. The professor are will help you if you need it. They also have honor students willing to help you too. The only thing that I do not like is the service they give for FAFSA, the little lady that is in the front office does not want to help me at all.

  12. What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

    I didn't really know what to expect attending Motlow State Community College, but I did expect to actually feel like I was transitioning from a high school student to a college, and I must say that I do not feel that transition. The stories that my Middle Tennessee State University friends share with me are far more different then the stories I have to share. My stories usually consist of my attendace to class that day, rather then the interesting people I met, and so forth.
