School Overview

Hiwassee College’s early history is linked very closely with the founding in 1826 of Tullagalla Academy, a school for boys, located in the Fork Creek Community. When the academy director left in 1848, a group of five local Methodist leaders worked to continue a school at the college level. Thus, in 1849, the College was organized, replacing and expanding the academy’s program. Hiwassee College was chartered by the State of Tennessee in 1850. For many years Hiwassee College offered training beginning with elementary school and continuing through the Bachelor’s degree. At some periods in its history, the College granted the Master’s degree. Currently, Hiwassee College offers programs of study leading to both Associate’s and Bachelor’s degrees.

Hiwassee College now provides opportunities to earn and complete a degree by taking day and evening classes. Students can enjoy traditional classes, online classes, or blended classes.
