Tennessee State Seeks High-Performing Out-of-State Students

Tennessee State University, the historically Black educational institution in Nashville, is instituting a financial incentive to attract high-performing students from other states. Students who qualify for the new Scholar Tuition Rate will pay approximately one-half the normal rate for tuition paid by students from other states.

The new rate will be available for the 2012-13 academic year and new and returning students are eligible. New first-year students must have maintained a 3.0 grade point average in high school and scored at least a 21 on the composite ACT or a 980 on the reading and mathematics sections of the SAT. Returning students must have a 3.0 grade point average at Tennessee State and have completed all their course work from the previous semester.

Students do not have apply for the Scholar Tuition Rate. The university will automatically apply the new tuition rate for those who qualify.
