Financial Aid Handbook


COVID-19 Update: to prevent the spread of the virus within our campus community, Financial Aid staff are not currently working on campus to assist students and families face to face. You may still contact us by email at or by phone at (423) 902-2578 with questions, for financial advising, or for instructions on how to complete financial aid requirements. Remember to continue and check your TigerWeb, Self-Service Banner, and Tigermail accounts for more information.

Due to technical systems upgrades, we are currently unable to load 2020-2021 FAFSAs for the new aid year. We anticipate being able to load 2020-2021 applications in early to mid-March, and begin awarding financial aid for the 2020-2021 year in April. This will not affect your eligibility for state grants and scholarships: as long as you first submitted your FAFSA by the posted deadline(s), then you will be fine. In the meantime, continue to monitor your Self-Service Banner and Tiger Mail accounts for financial aid requirements and updated information.

Remember, if you are receiving the TN Reconnect Grant, you must complete a renewal application each year at, along with completing the FAFSA and meeting other eligibility requirements. You can complete the TN Reconnect application at any time, but the FAFSA deadlines are September 1st for the fall semester, and February 1st for the spring and summer semesters.
