Deadline for Free College Tuition is May 15

Beginning in fall 2015, the TN Reconnect grant will provide eligible adults the opportunity to earn a diploma or certificate at a Tennessee College of Applied Technology (TCAT) free of tuition and mandatory fees. The TN Reconnect grant is a last-dollar scholarship, meaning it will cover the remaining costs of tuition and mandatory fees for a TCAT program after all other state and federal financial aid has been applied. The grant serves to enable more adults to attend TCATs by lessening the financial burden.
There are 27 TCATs in the state, which provide training for workers to obtain the technical and professional skills necessary for advancement in today’s job market. With graduation rates of over 85 percent statewide and job placement rates equally as high, TCATs are a great option if you are hoping to gain a unique skill and advance into a technical career quickly.
In Jackson, TCAT is located at 2468 Technology Center Drive. For more information about their programs of study, http://www.tcatjackson.edu/ or call 731.424.0691.
