New TN Reconnect Scholarship for Adults Starts Fall of 2018

There is a high degree of public interest in the new version of TN Reconnect, which will be a last dollar scholarship, making community college tuition-free for adult students. It just passed the legislature and will be signed by the Governor.  It starts in Fall of 2018. This is a link to the TN Reconnect eligibility requirements. Please note that some of the most important eligibility info is in the notes at the bottom of the page, which explain who can be called an “independent student."

In the meantime, we are encouraging adults who want to get a degree to start this fall by applying for current Financial Aid, such as Pell Grants and scholarships.

To get started visit the Adult Learning web page.
