Chattanooga State Encourages Students Receiving TN Promise To "Finish The FAFSA"

Friday, January 21, 2022 - by Betty Proctor, Chattanooga State

Chattanooga State Community College, in collaboration with the Tennessee Board of Regents, encourages all students currently receiving Tennessee Promise for the 2021-2022 academic year to “Finish the FAFSA” by submitting their Federal Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form for the 2022-2023 academic year. 

The FAFSA form must be submitted each year for students to qualify for TN Promise and TN Reconnect. Students who “Finish the FAFSA,” and submit their 2022-2023 FAFSA, can avoid last-minute panic as they approach the final submission deadline of March 1. 

By filing the FAFSA before the deadline, currently enrolled Tennessee Promise students can continue eligibility in Fall 2022, provided all other criteria are met. In addition, submitting the FAFSA form is required for other financial aid resources provided by Chattanooga State, such as scholarships or grants.  

For more information or assistance, contact Chattanooga State’s Financial Aid Office at 423-697-4402.
