Tennessee is offering free money for college. That’s right. How does free college tuition sound? Under Governor Bill Haslam, Tennessee started a program for high seniors called Tennessee Promise. The program provides a free college education to any graduating senior in the state.
“This is a great program because we are the only state in the country that can offer free community and technical college to any of our citizens,” Graham Thomas with Tennessee Promise explained.
The TN Promise program provides two years of free tuition to any of Tennessee’s community colleges or colleges of applied technology, as well as a handful of four-year universities.
