Counselor Toolkit

Class of 2024 Counselor Toolkit

The Class of 2024 TN Promise application is now open for completion at! To become eligible for the TN Promise scholarship, students must complete the TN Promise application online by November 1, 2023. Any student who does not complete the application by the deadline will not be eligible to receive the scholarship.

Our hope is that all students, regardless of post-secondary plans, complete the TN Promise application for eligibility. Many students may not currently plan to attend a TN Promise eligible institution next fall, but plans often change as students go through their senior year. We want to ensure all students can take advantage of TN Promise, even if only as a backup plan. As mentioned above, if a student does not complete the application, they cannot become eligible for TN Promise later.

After the November 1st application deadline, tnAchieves will begin communicating with applicants and their parent/guardian. It is important that students provide accurate and working contact information when completing the scholarship application. We strongly encourage students to use a personal email address rather than a high school email address as many districts only allow students to receive emails from within the district, and high school email addresses are often disabled after graduation. Upon successful completion of the scholarship application, students will receive a confirmation email from the Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation (TSAC) for their records!

We are excited to begin working with you and your Class of 2024 TN Promise applicants! Please feel free to use our website as a resource for materials, information and guidance. Additionally, we ask that you encourage your students to become familiar with TN Promise scholarship eligibility requirements, the tnAchieves program and policies!
