COVID-19 Updates

Due to current conditions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and out of an abundance of caution the Tennessee Higher Education Commission/Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation (THEC/TSAC) has made the decision to waive the December 1 community service requirement. A Tennessee Promise student beginning or continuing enrollment at an eligible institution for the spring 2021 term will not be required to complete and submit community service to maintain eligibility.

In addition, the deadline to apply for the Tennessee Promise scholarship will be extended from November 2, 2020 to December 1, 2020.  More information can be found in the November 2, 2020 press release.

March 2021 Enrollment Levels Update

THEC/TSAC will continue to monitor the impact from COVID-19 on our state to determine any additional accommodations which may become necessary in the fall semester and beyond.

If you have questions regarding this decision please contact tn.promise@tn.gov.
