MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Some Tennessee students could get free tuition to the University of Tennessee with a new program announced Thursday.
The program, called UT Promise, would make tuition free for the UT campuses in Knoxville, Chattanooga or Martin (but not the UT medical college in Memphis) for families making less than $50,000 annually.
The article says the program is set to begin in the fall of 2020, and goes on to state the following:
“It is critically important that we take a lead role in ensuring students can achieve their dream of obtaining an undergraduate college degree,” UT interim president Randy Boyd said. “It is our mission and responsibility to do everything we can to ease the financial burden for our middle- and working-class families, and UT Promise is an ideal conduit to achieve that.”
