Financial aid

You deserve an affordable, quality education

Earning your college degree is a challenge; paying for it shouldn’t be.

If the rising cost of college has kept you from pursuing your education, remember that most TCC students receive some financial assistance to make college affordable. This assistance can include merit and need-based scholarships, grants, loans and work-study programs to help you reduce or eliminate college debt. 

Consider all financial aid carefully as student debt may affect your future financial stability. And remember: The early bird gets the aid. Complete all forms accurately and on time.‚Äč
