Free College Succeeding in TennesseeOctober 19, 2017 |
by Dian Schaffhauser
Tuition-free attendance in Tennessee is raising college and full-time enrollment and speeding the awarding of degrees. Those are the outcomes shared with the state’s Board of Regents regarding the first class of “Tennessee Promise” students, who entered college in the fall of 2015 and have gone through four semesters since then.
The program gives students up to five semesters of tuition-free attendance at a community college or college of applied technology.
