The Arts-Based Collaborative at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (ABC at UTC) is a community-engaged center under the College of Health, Education, and Professional Studies. Formerly known as the Southeast Center for Education in the Arts (SCEA), ABC at UTC builds off the center’s extensive history of facilitating interdisciplinary programs in and through the arts. The mission of ABC at UTC is to integrate arts-based solutions across multiple fields and disciplines to shape a collaborative workforce while amplifying diverse voices, perspectives, and skillsets into an arts-rich world of today and tomorrow. Under the guidance of the Lyndhurst Chair of Excellence in Arts Education, ABC at UTC activates its mission by collaborating with teaching artists to facilitate classroom residencies in conjunction with program partners, including our affiliate with the Wolf Institute for Early Learning through the Arts. UTC students pursuing careers in arts education have opportunities to work alongside ABC at UTC teaching artists and contribute to other interdisciplinary projects such as the Simulated Patient Actor Program in partnership with the UTC School of Nursing’s graduate programs and activities focused on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) in collaboration with the Challenger STEM Learning Center.

The University provides each student with an official University ID card, the Mocs Card. This card is used to gain admission to athletic events, to check out books from the library, to obtain special rates and privileges at many University functions, and to indicate the individual’s right to use University facilities. Mocs Cards can also be used as a debit card using Scrappy Cash at the following locations:

A student’s account can be managed online through the GET app by registering at https://get.cbord.com/utc/full/prelogin.php. Money can be added to your mocs card online through the GET app by depositing Scrappy Cash using a credit card. Also, deposits can be made in the form of cash or check in the UTC Bursar’s Office, 274 University Center.
The ID Office is located in the University Center, Room 262, next to the University Bookstore. The phone number is (423) 425-2218. A student’s initial Mocs Card is intended to last throughout a student’s entire stay at UTC. Lost or stolen cards should be reported immediately through the GET app found on the Mocs Card Office webpage (https://www.utc.edu/finance-and-administration/auxiliary-services/mocs-card). UTC is not liable for any loss of funds due to misuse or theft of a student’s Mocs Card. Replacement cards (lost, broken or damaged) are made at the ID Office for a cost of $30.00 to be paid at the Bursar’s Office. Once a replacement card is made, the previous card cannot be reactivated under any circumstances. No fee is charged for the initial card. Replacement of a card due to a change in cardholder status or name is free; however, the old card must be presented in exchange. The filing of a police report does not waive the replacement fee of a stolen card.
Money deposited in book points or Scrappy Cash may be refunded to students upon graduation, in accordance with the University policy. At the time of account closure, a $15 service fee and any other debts due to the University will be deducted from the balance. The University does not process refund checks for under $3; therefore, no refunds will be given for balances of $18 or less. A completed Account Closure Request Form must be submitted to the Mocs Card Office for processing. See Mocs Card Brochure for more detailed information or visit our website.
The mission of the Division of Information Technology is to serve as the innovative strategic partner in advancing UTC’s drive to excellence in teaching, research and public service.

The University recommends that students obtain separate hospitalization and medical insurance. A health insurance policy is offered through the University and covers a schedule of expenses for surgery and hospitalization in case of accident or illness. International students may have health insurance requirements. Information about this policy is mailed to students in the summer. Additional information is available on the University Health Services website.
A few of the academic programs (such as nursing) have a health insurance requirement; students should inquire directly with the program director if there is a question regarding their program requirements.
