Student Portal

Pellissippi State's myPellissippi portal allows students the opportunity to pay their tuition, register for classes, and access their grades and records. If you have any issues with the student portal, contact Pellissippi's Help Desk at or 865-694-6537.

Verification Process

Once FAFSAs are submitted to Pellissippi State, Banner automatically generates verification requirements for students. An automated email is then sent out to the student notifying them of the requirements and instructing them to log into their myPellissippi account. Email reminders are sent to students every month until June, then every two weeks from that point forward. Students can access online forms, messages and all of their requirements on their myPellissippi account, which they can access within 24-48 hours of applying to the school. The most common documentation that students struggle to submit are tax transcripts that students have to obtain through the IRS (Wage transcripts, W-2s, etc.).
