The TN Promise Free Application for Federal Student Aid filing deadline is quickly approaching.

Saturday, Feb. 1, is the final day for both TN Promise high school and college students to complete the 2020-21 FAFSA to retain scholarship eligibility. 

“TnAchieves strongly encourages all students, regardless of post-secondary plans, to file the FAFSA as soon as possible,” Amanda Schneider, tnAchieves senior director of communications, said in a press release. “The FAFSA is directly correlated with increased college enrollment and completion. Completing a FAFSA creates opportunities for students as it allows a student to access federal and state aid.”

For TN Promise eligibility, high school seniors and current TN Promise college students must complete the 2020-21 FAFSA no later than Feb. 1. The FAFSA can be found at www.fafsa.gov
