As reported by Nashville Public Radio, University of Tennessee President Randy Boyd, has announced, “Students who qualify for the HOPE scholarship, coming from families that make $50,000 or less will be able to attend the University of Tennessee for free in 2020.” 

Although TN Promise has benefited students across the state with access to tuition-free college, other costs are still a deterrent. Room and board alone at UT Knoxville is estimated at more than $11,000.  UT Promise is a step in the right direction to help families with affording college and all of the costs associated with it.
