Tennessee Reconnect is Ready for Applications for Tuition-Free Schooling
tn.gov/Darcy Klein Friday February 16, 2018

Through the Tennessee Reconnect, adults can now apply to enroll tuition-free at most community or technical colleges. Similar to the Tennessee Promise, Tennessee Reconnect allows high school graduates an opportunity to go to college tuition-free for two years. The difference between the two is that Tennessee Reconnect is for adults who have not received any sort of associates or bachelor's degree. According to tn.gov, Bill Haslam is hoping to "increase the number of Tennesseans with a postsecondary degree or certificate to 55 percent by 2025". To apply for Tennessee Reconnect you have to follow 4 steps: complete the application at TNReconnect.gov, apply to a local community college or eligible Tennessee Reconnect institution, file for FAFSA, and enroll in a degree or certificate program at least part-time. These programs have made Tennessee the first state in America to offer all high school graduates and adults the chance to go back to school tuition-free to earn a postsecondary degree or a certificate.
