Get Help with Financial Aid Forms This Saturday!
October 21, 2019

Walters State Community College will hold Scholarship Saturday from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. on Oct. 26 in the R. Jack Fishman Library on the Morristown Campus. Students can complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the Walters State admission application and scholarship applications for Tennessee Promise and Tennessee Reconnect.
The FAFSA is used to determine financial aid for many different programs. The form is required for Tennessee Promise and Tennessee Reconnect, and it serves as the application for the Tennessee Hope Lottery Scholarship.
Individuals should bring 2018 tax returns with any W-2 forms and any tax schedules to complete the FAFSA. 

"This is great way to complete your FAFSA, your Walters State application and Tennessee Promise or Tennessee Reconnection applications in time for spring semester or for enrollment in fall, 2020," said Laura Rodriguez, director of financial aid at the college. 

The Tennessee Promise scholarship is for high school students who will graduate in 2020. 

Tennessee Reconnect is a last-dollar grant that allows adult learners who qualify to attend a community college tuition-free. To be eligible, students must be a resident of Tennessee for at least one year and enroll in at least six hours leading to a certificate or degree program. Individuals who already have an associate’s or bachelor’s degree are not eligible. 
All applications are free. No reservations are required for the event.
