The Tennessee Higher Education Commission is designating March 20th through 31st, 2023 as the Countdown to College, Last Call for Fall, in a push to encourage students to apply to college, persist in their college coursework and obtain a degree.

The Tennessee Higher Education Commission recently designated 2023 as a momentum-building year in higher education with the primary goal of increasing the college-going rate for the high school class of 2023 to at least 60 percent.

With Tennessee’s college-going rate trending downward over the past five years, we must all work together to take swift action to inform and engage more students with the many educational and job training options they have after high school.

The Tennessee Higher Education Commission has curated a number of resources for students to support the college-going process, including the Last Call for Fall Application Video Toolkit to find online Tennessee college applications, learn how to complete them, and discover which schools charge application fees.
