TN Promise students at CSCC can skip community service

Posted
Issues with COVID-19 in the Volunteer State have led to a decision which will allow Cleveland State Community College, and other eligible institutions, to allow students to skip a key component of the Tennessee Promise guidelines for 2020-2021.  
 
The Tennessee Higher Education Commission (THEC) and Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation (TSAC) have waived the tnAchieves community service requirement. The original deadline for eligible Fall 2020 students to complete eight hours of required community service was July 1. So, Tennessee Promise students enrolling at Cleveland State this fall will not have to complete and submit community service hour paperwork to earn or maintain eligibility.
 
Approximately 40% of all high school seniors in Tennessee this year have applied for Tennessee Promise. The popular state aid program provides funding to students pursuing a two-year collegiate degree, diploma, or certificate at any of the state’s Tennessee Board of Regents Community Colleges or and Tennessee College of Applied Technology (TCAT).  
 
For more information about Cleveland State Community College, visit the college at ClevelandStateCC.edu or call 423-472-7141. Students are currently enrolled online and on-campus through the CSCC main campus in Cleveland, as well as CSCC’s Athens Center and Monroe County Center in Vonore.
