It’s never too early to start planning for postsecondary. The Federal Student Aid Checklist is a valuable tool to share with parents and students, even in elementary grades, to promote and plan for entering post-secondary after high school graduation. You can even create your own checklist to specifically target your student population.
If you have questions about postsecondary access and success, please email Early.Postsecondary@tn.gov.
