Cleveland State Community College Foundation Event Goes Online

Friday, September 18, 2020

Cleveland State Community College and Tennessee Promise are set for a Nov. 2 deadline to help high school seniors graduating in 2021 to qualify for a tuition-free college education. The Tennessee Promise program is a scholarship and mentoring program that helps pay for tuition and fees that other financial aid options may not cover.

Students who qualify for Tennessee Promise can earn two years of tuition-free attendance at Cleveland State. To apply for the Tennessee Promise program, visit the college’s website at MyCS.CC/TNPromise. Or, visit the application site directly at TNPromise.gov.

The only college in the Tennessee Board of Regents System with its own Honors College, Cleveland State has educational options here in Southeast Tennessee that can lead to a career anywhere in the world. And, in 2021, Cleveland State will open its newest facilities; a Health and Science Center on the college’s main campus and the McMinn Higher Education Center in Athens, Tn.

For information about Tennessee Promise at Cleveland State Community College, call 473-2310. For more information on Cleveland State Community College, call 472-7141 or visit the college at ClevelandStateCC.edu.
