Last year, more than 360 students took advantage of the program to earn tuition free degrees in fields such as nursing, information technology, welding, business and more. The program is open to everyone, regardless of income. All students in the qualifying programs need to do is fill out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). The state then covers the remaining balance beyond the aid for which you are eligible. Even if you receive no federal or state aid, the program will pay your entire tuition. That’s right, regardless of your personal income situation, you will pay no tuition costs.
To be eligible, new high school graduates must enroll full-time. Adult learners may enroll full- or part-time. Students can receive the Last-Dollar Scholarship for up to five full-time semesters or eight part-time semesters. Qualified students will need to reapply each year.
