TICUA Member Institutions Make College Affordable

Sources of Grant Aid for First-time Freshmen
Although students at TICUA member institutions benefit greatly from federal programs like the Pell Grant and State aid programs like the lottery scholarship and the Tennessee Student Assistance Award, 80% of the grant money received by first-time freshmen enrolled at independent colleges and universities is provided directly by the institution.
