Go to college tuition-free.

COVID-19 Update

Due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and recent weather events, we believe some students may have a difficult time completing the FAFSA by the established Tennessee Promise and Tennessee Student Assistance Award deadlines. Therefore, the decision has been made to extend the Tennessee Promise Scholarship FAFSA deadline and the priority FAFSA deadline for the Tennessee Student Assistance Award to March 1, 2022. This deadline extension will be in effect for new and continuing students.

Apply for the scholarship by completing the TN Promise application by November 2 of your senior year of high school. The application can be found at the link below.

TN eCampus Courses

NOTE: TN eCampus courses are all charged at a per-hour rate and viewed separately from other online or face-to-face courses. TN eCampus fees are not included in the full-time cap applicable to all other types of courses. For example, if a student enrolls for 15 hours not including a TN eCampus class, the tuition and fees would be $2252. If a student signs up for 15 hours, including one 3-hour TN eCampus class, the tuition and fees would be $2852. TN Reconnect and TN Promise only pay up to the amount of regular tuition and fees for the hours registered. The additional amount charged because of the TN eCampus class would not be covered by these programs.
