Tennessee Promise

Tennessee Promise

Tennessee students in the Associate Degree Programs at Carson-Newman can participate in the Tennessee Promise program, which could provide with them with extra funding for college during their Associate Degree, will connect them with a mentor, and will help keep them on track to earning and Associate and later a Bachelor’s degree.  The Tennessee Promise Scholarship is a last dollar program in which the amount of scholarship depends on the number of credit hours in which a student is enrolled and whether the student has other federal and/or state aid eligibility.  Contact the Financial Aid Office with any questions about your TN Promise eligibility.
