Finally File the FAFSA

Tennessee deadline for FAFSA filing is May 15th

It’s time.

To file the FAFSA.

If you’re going to a public college or university in Tennessee in the fall, the time to file your FAFSA is now.

“We don’t want our student applicants passing up significant financial benefits,” said Dr. Michael Licari, Austin Peay State University president. “We see such great potential within the young adults of Tennessee, and failure to submit their FAFSA before the deadline should not be the hurdle that prevents them from achieving their educational dreams.”

The deadline is May 15th.

Speaking Out for Truth

Advocacy group raises alarm about “divisive concepts” legislation

An advocacy group focused on clear and accurate education around topics of race, gender, and sexuality is speaking out against a further update to Tennessee’s “divisive concepts” law that would punish public universities in the state for teaching the truth.

The group notes that the latest round of legislation restricting concepts that can be taught at the state’s public higher education institutions carries potential financial penalties for “failing to prevent” the teaching of divisive concepts.

“Suppressing our ability to discuss and understand the role of racism in this country’s history is to conceal racism and defend this country’s history of white supremacy.”
