To apply, Tennessee residents should complete the application at, apply to a local community college or eligible institution, file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid, and enroll in a degree or certificate program at least part-time. 

To be eligible, an individual must have lived in Tennessee at least one year, not already hold an associate or bachelor's degree, and be determined as an independent student on the FAFSA.
