Dear Chattanooga State Community,

2022–2023 Financial Aid Awards

Due to recent changes to the federal Pell Grant and TN state scholarship and grant programs, the Financial Aid Office at Chattanooga State will begin packaging awards for the 2022-2023 the week of May 16th, 2022. Keep in mind that your award package could change as your 2022-2023 FAFSA information is updated, as eligibility rosters are sent from the state, as transcripts are received from other schools, and as Chattanooga State scholarship applications are evaluated.

A few other important points:

  • Tuition and fees for the fall semester will probably be assessed to your account in early to mid July, 2022, so you will be able to determine if any financial aid you are eligible for will cover all of your semester balance before any upcoming payment deadlines.
  • If you are transfering to Chatt State from another college or university, or originally planned on attending another school, you may need to update your #1 school selection on the 2022-2023 FAFSA, or update your school of choice in the TSAC Student Portal.
  • If you are eligible for the TN Promise Scholarship (community college) or the TN Reconnect Grant (community college), you will start off with a $0 award amount if we have received your eligibility information from the state. The actual dollar amount will be calculated after tuition and fees are assessed in early to mid-July, based on tuition and mandatory fees (fees charged to all students) and other gift aid.
  • You will be able to access the “Accept Award Offer” tab to accept/decline your federal Direct Loans in mid to late July. This is to allow all other grants and scholarships to be awarded for which you might be eligible, since this affects your loan eligibility. If you are borrowing federal student loans for the first time at Chatt State, remember to complete Entrance Counseling and a Master Promissory Note (MPN) at
