Free College for Eligible Knox County Residents
AT COTC, there’s no need to delay your goals. For eligible students, COTC’s Knox Promise guarantees to fund the gap between tuition (instructional and general fees) and remaining student need after all other private scholarships and institutional, federal and state aid are exhausted. Under the program, all tuition will be covered for eligible students annually reporting a household income of $60,000 or less on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The Knox Promise is open to new, current or returning COTC students who do not already hold a bachelor’s or associate degree and are current Knox County residents who have lived in the county for at least one year. The Knox Promise will be available in COTC’s upcoming autumn semester, which begins on Aug. 24. For full details about Knox Promise eligibility, visit go.cotc.edu/knoxpromise.
