Time running out for Tennessee seniors to apply for free tuition program

There’s less than a month left for high school seniors to apply for Tennessee promise, the governor’s free tuition program.
    
Gov. Bill Haslam’s office said in a news release Monday that more than 15,000 students from the class of 2015 are using Tennessee Promise benefits this fall, the first year of study. The release said the number of students enrolling full time in community college immediately after high school grew by 14 percent over last fall.
    
The deadline for the class of 2016 is Nov. 2.
    
After completing an application, students must file a federal student aid form, attend two mandatory meetings and complete eight hours of community service.
    
Haslam also encouraged adults to sign up to mentor students in the program.
    
Student and mentor applications are available at http://tnpromise.gov.
