Chattanooga State Community College will open up its computer lab located in the Health Science Center from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 20, for area high school seniors to sign up for Tennessee Promise and fill out their college applications as part of a statewide Scholarship Saturday.
The event is designed to encourage students to enroll in Tennessee Promise, the state’s new program that provides two years of community college or technical school tuition-free for any student graduating from a Tennessee high school. The Class of 2015 will be the first eligible to take advantage of the program, which is part of the Drive to 55 initiative to increase the number of Tennesseans with some form of post-secondary credential.
During Scholarship Saturday, students may come to the Health Science Center at Chattanooga State between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. and use the college’s computers to sign up online. Free refreshments also will be on hand for anyone signing up.
