The Tennessee Board of Regents voted to make it less expensive for students to graduate from the state’s 13 community colleges and elected Governor Bill Haslam chairman of the board at its quarterly meeting held at Northeast State Community College March 25.
While other incidental fees may be increasing at schools across the state, Tennessee’s community colleges have decided to eliminate their graduation fees. The move will encourage more students to cap their community college experience with an associate’s degree before transferring to a four-year university.
