Seniors: This is an urgent message for students who are applying for the TN Promise Scholarship. If you filled out the TN Promise Scholarship, you need to come to the counseling office and check to make sure your name is on the list taped to the table in the lobby ASAP. If your name is not on the list, you need to log into your TSAC account and check to make sure you actually applied for the TN Promise Scholarship. If you created a TSAC account, but did not actually apply for the scholarship, the state will give you another chance to do so. The state is going to send you an e-mail letting you know when they will open a 12 hour window for you to go back in and apply. Check your e-mail daily and be sure you check the e-mail account you listed when you set up your TSAC account. Make sure the e-mail you typed in is a valid e-mail address. You have to log back into your account, click the button that says “Apply for Scholarships,” scroll down and click on “TN Promise Scholarship,” and complete your application. If you have any questions, please come to the counseling office.
