TN Promise FAFSA Deadline!

Today is the last day students can submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to remain eligible for the TN Promise scholarship.

Students must submit the forms by midnight tonight in order to take part in the last-dollar scholarship to any any of the state’s 13 community colleges, 27 colleges of applied technology, or other eligible institution offering an associate’s degree program.

As of February 12, 47 percent (4,516) of all Shelby County seniors have completed the FAFSA.

However, more than 7,600 seniors completed a TN Promise application. We have less than one day to make sure these students are able to take advantage of the resources available to them.

Take time today to talk to the students you work with, live with or know to make sure they take advantage of the resources available to them.
