About TSAC

The Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation (TSAC) is relentlessly focused on increasing the number of Tennesseans with a postsecondary credential.

Created by the Tennessee General Assembly in 1974 as a non-profit corporation with the merging of the Tennessee Educational Loan Corporation and the Tennessee Tuition Grant Program, the Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation (TSAC) administers over 20 different state student financial aid programs, including the HOPE scholarship, Tennessee Promise, Tennessee Reconnect, Tennessee Student Assistance Award, and the Dual Enrollment grant. 

To increase awareness and participation in the financial aid programs, the agency conducts financial aid outreach and training to students and staff at every high school and postsecondary institution in the state.  Staff also consult with postsecondary financial aid offices to improve program effectiveness, compliance, and efficiency.
