King University News :: King College to Host Open House at Hardin Valley Location in Knoxville

King College will host an Open House on Wednesday, April 11 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the College's Hardin Valley location at 10950 Spring Bluff Way, Knoxville, Tenn.

This Open House will provide the opportunity to meet one-on-one with faculty, financial aid counselors, admissions representatives, career center counselors, and tour King's newest location.

King offers programs specifically designed with the adult learner in mind through the College's Graduate and Professional Studies (GPS) program, as well as numerous courses for students who wish to transition from an associate degree to a bachelor's degree.

Our GPS program is tailored to reduce the challenges facing the adult learner, stated Micah Crews, associate vice president of enrollment management. Time and access is often a barrier for students to finish their degrees. By offering classes in convenient locations, one night per week, the working adult may obtain their degree in as little as 16 months and open the door for professional advancement.

GPS degree offerings for King's Hardin Valley location include bachelor's degrees in Communication, Psychology, Business, Information Technology, Allied Health, and Nursing, as well as master's degrees in Business and Nursing.

We are pleased to be able to offer degree programs in more than a dozen locations, said Mona Salyer, director of recruitment for Graduate and Professional Studies. Whether it is a personal goal or a step toward furthering their career, King is making it easier for working adults throughout the region in their quest to obtain their degree.

For the 22nd consecutive year, U.S. News World Report has recognized King among the best colleges in the nation. This year, King was named a Best Regional University. The Princeton Review named King one of the Best Colleges in the Southeast for an eighth consecutive year.


King also offers opportunities for those who have or are currently serving in the United States Military. G.I. Jobs, the premier publication for transitioning military personnel, has designated King College as a Military Friendly School for the third consecutive year. King has a VA representative on campus that can assist in making the college dream a reality. King accepts qualifying credits from the military, old credits, as well as credits from nationally and/or regionally accredited schools, and previously accredited closed colleges.

Our degree programs are intended to build knowledge and practice in the field, foster professional integrity, and promote personal growth, stated Crews. Ultimately, the outcomes of this program will improve education for students, their families, and communities throughout our region.

Those attending the Open House will also have the opportunity to view a photography exhibit by Nicole Poyo. Poyo, a senior photography student at King College, delves into the theme, Made in U.S.A., through an intimate set of portraits that survey the relationship between the artisan and their craft. The exhibit will be available for public viewing during Knoxville's Dogwood Arts Festival April 5 through April 30 Monday.

Application fees will be waived for all who attend. For more information, please contact King's Office of Admissions at or toll free at 800.362.0014. You may also apply online at
