LOGO motlow college 001LYNCHBURG, Tenn. — Motlow State Community College’s Moore County and Smyrna campuses will open up computer labs from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1, for area high school seniors to sign up for Tennessee Promise.

Motlow State staff will assist students in registering for Tennessee Promise, applying to Motlow State, and completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

The Tennessee Promise is Governor Bill Haslam’s program to provide two years of community college or technical school tuition. Tennessee Promise is part of the Drive to 55 initiative to increase the number of Tennesseans with some form of post-secondary credential, such as a college degree or technical certificate.

During Scholarship Saturday, students may come to the Moore County and Smyrna campuses and use the college’s computers to sign up online. Breakfast food will be on hand for anyone signing up. Students and parents should bring their social security number, driver’s license number, FSA ID login information and their 2015 tax return.

“Tennessee Promise is such an incredible opportunity for students to pursue their dreams after high school,” said Jonathan Graham, a Tennessee Promise coordinator at Motlow. “We want to make signing up for the Promise easy for the students and also give them an opportunity to get their application to Motlow and complete the FAFSA at the same time. This puts them well on their way down the path to a degree or certificate.”

The Moore County campus is located at 6015 Ledford Mill Rd. in Tullahoma, and the Smyrna campus is located at 5002 Motlow College Blvd. in Smyrna.
