Due to current conditions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and out of an abundance of caution the Tennessee Higher Education Commission/Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation (THEC/TSAC) has made the decision to waive the July 1 community service requirement. A Tennessee Promise student enrolling at an eligible institution for the fall 2020 term will not be required to complete and submit community service to maintain eligibility.
THEC/TSAC will continue to monitor the impact from COVID-19 on our state to determine any additional accommodations which may become necessary in the fall semester and beyond.
If you have questions regarding this decision, please contact [email protected].
Please join me Tuesday, June 2nd at 1:00 PM for a one-hour support session. We will talk about your next steps and how you are feeling about your new, exciting journey! I can't wait to see you all!
