TN Promise FAFSA deadline for education financial aid is Feb. 1

The TN Promise Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA filing deadline is Friday, Feb. 1.
It’s the final day for both TN Promise high school and college students to complete the FAFSA to retain scholarship eligibility. The FAFSA, a federal application, is the primary financial aid application that any student enrolling in post-secondary must complete in order to determine state and federal scholarship and grant qualifications.
tnAchieves Senior Director of Communications Amanda Bolden encourages students and families to complete the 2019-2020 FAFSA as soon as possible. “The FAFSA application process should not be delayed,” says Bolden. “Completing a FAFSA provides many students the opportunity to access financial aid. At tnAchieves, we believe every student should complete a FAFSA to ensure the student understands all college options. Ultimately, we want all students to attend and graduate college – technical, community and/or 4-year institutions.”
Tennessee led the country in FAFSA completion for three years prior to the 2018 FAFSA completion season, when the state tied with Louisiana for top state.
For TN Promise eligibility, high school seniors and current TN Promise college students must complete the 2019-2020 FAFSA no later than Feb. 1. The FAFSA is found at
