Students at Nashville State Community College should have a little more room with the construction of a new building on the north end of campus.
The building will be home to new classrooms, labs, support services and a large auditorium, said Keith Ferguson, who handles public affairs for the college.
The facility off White Bridge Road should be open by June 2015.
It comes as NSCC braces for a possible surge in enrollment.
Seniors graduating from Metro schools have the chance to attend a community or technical college for free, under the Nashville Achieves Program. The initiative was announced last year and also provides mentorship and requires community service from students.
Ferguson said NSCC will be keeping a close eye on fall enrollment numbers, but so far does not know how many students will take advantage of the program.
Two-year schools across the state will likely see even more enrollment under "Tennessee Promise," a law being signed by Gov. Bill Haslam to cover community college tuition for high school graduates anywhere in Tennessee.
