Under the leadership of Governor Bill Haslam, Tennessee is now one of the first states to offer two years of free college tuition to adults. Interested adults can complete a student passport to receive guidance from a TN Reconnect advisor. This last dollar scholarship is available to those who are attending college for the first time, veterans and service members, and those returning to finish a degree.

The Tennesee Reconnect grant can be used at over 50 institutions across the state, including the Tennessee Colleges of Applied Technology, Tennessee Community Colleges, Tennessee Public Universities, Tennesee Independent Colleges and Universities and select Private For-Profit Colleges. The full list of participating institutions is here. View the infographic below for eligibility requirements and click here to apply.
