Tennessee Promise offers two years of tuition-free community or technical college to Tennessee high school graduates beginning with the Class of 2015.
Tennessee Promise is a last-dollar scholarship, meaning it will cover college costs not met from Pell, HOPE, or TSAA.
As part of the program, students will be paired with a partnering organization serving their home county and will be provided with a mentor who will support them during the college application process.
High school seniors may apply here for the Tennessee Promise scholarship before November 1, 2016.
College App Week at Clay County High
The Tennessee Higher Education Commission in collaboration with CollegeforTN.org is pleased to announce September 29-October 3. as Tennessee College App Week. Throughout this week, high schools across the state will host College App Week events to assist students with the college application process. On Friday, October 28 all seniors expected to graduate in May/June will be encouraged to complete at least one online application for admission to a higher education institution, if they have not already done so. This event is possible due to the collaborative efforts of the administration, faculty, and staff at Clay County High, as well as students, their families, and volunteers across the community.
The goal of College App Week is to provide the opportunity for all Tennessee seniors to complete and file college applications. In order to participate fully, prior to College App Week, students will need to research the institutions to which they want to apply.
For more information contact Brooke Burchett at Clay County High.
