Tennessee Promise

Tennessee Promise

Finances and the lack of support are two major barriers to higher education in Tennessee.
With the Tennessee Promise, Roane State is breaking down those barriers.

Due to current conditions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and out of an abundance of caution the Tennessee Higher Education Commission/Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation (THEC/TSAC) has made the decision to waive the December 1, 2020 community service requirement. A Tennessee Promise student beginning or continuing enrollment at an eligible institution for the spring 2021 term will not be required to complete and submit community service to maintain eligibility.

TEASER AREA

What is the Tennessee Promise?

How does the scholarship work?

Tennessee Promise is a last-dollar scholarship. That means it will cover tuition and mandatory fees that are leftover after the Pell Grant, Hope Scholarship and Tennessee Student Assistance Award Program (TSAA) have been applied to to your account.

Who is eligible for the scholarship?

Any senior who graduates from an eligible Tennessee high school or home school program and anyone who completes a GED or HiSET diploma before age 19 years of age can apply for funds. Tennessee Promise students who graduate from high school in spring 2020 must begin college in fall 2020 to receive funding.

Mentors needed

Mentors are crucial to the success of Tennessee Promise students. Roane State is working with tnAchieves to find and train mentors.
