Placeholder Image
Q: Who is eligible for Tennessee Promise?A: Any high school senior who graduates from an eligible Tennessee high school or completes a Tennessee home school program can apply for Tennessee Promise. Students will apply in early fall of their high school senior year and begin working with a mentor and attending mandatory meetings in their counties by January. While Tennessee Promise is available to all students regardless of socioeconomic status, partnering organizations will work with high school guidance counselors to target at-risk students who would otherwise not pursue education beyond high school.
