Private college leaders in Tennessee want to make sure a proposal to provide free community college doesn't affect their students' wallets. The Tennessee Independent Colleges and Universities Association says Governor Bill Haslam's free community college plan works by redistributing state aid money away from some four-year college students. Under the governor's plan, money to increase the aid to community college students would come by reducing aid to first-year and sophomore four-year college students. The private college plan would prevent those cuts to first and second-year four-year college students by rearranging other aid money and starting an endowment for community college aid.
