Tennessee Promise opportunities available for homeschool students

Jackson State Community College will hold two information sessions for homeschool students on Tuesday, October 16, from 4 to 6 p.m. and Thursday, October 18, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. All homeschool students, families, and homeschool groups in West Tennessee are invited to attend these free sessions.

JSCC is inviting homeschool students in the region to campus to learn more about how to take advantage of Tennessee Promise and other federal and state aid, apply for admission, programs of study, dual enrollment credit, and other education opportunities.

“We want to provide this opportunity for students to be sure they are taking advantage of all of the great programs that Jackson State and the state of Tennessee have to offer for higher education,” JSCC Vice President of Student Services Brian Gann said. “With a variety of programs available, families may not be aware of all the opportunities their students have to attend college. We will have staff on hand to help with admission applications, the federal FAFSA and state TSAC aid applications, and plenty of time to answer questions and visit campus.”

Representatives from Tennessee Achieves and the Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation are expected to attend to offer more information about their programs and how homeschool students can take advantage of them.

Students should park in the parking lot adjacent to the JSCC Student Center and check in for the event in the Student Center lobby.

Students interested in attending the information sessions are asked to register for the event. Registration can be done online by going to www.jscc.edu, clicking on “visit campus” at the top of the page and then selecting the “homeschool information session” of their choice.
