Southwest Virginia Community College will be offering free tuition for 2020 Tazewell County high school graduates. Free tuition was possible thanks to Priscilla McCall, trustee of the estate of Sam G. McCall Jr., and the Tazewell County Board of Supervisors.
The following students would qualify: those graduating from private schools, home schools, or receiving their GED with at least a 2.0 GPA are eligible. The scholarship is intended to cover any tuition and fees that are remaining after federal funding or other financial aid.
Students will need to enroll in at least six credit hours each semester and are encouraged to take 12 or more hours.
