Paying For College

For many students, paying for college is an insurmountable barrier. A college degree comes with a mountain of student loan debt that takes years to repay. TCC’s affordable tuition rates and financial aid packages enable 60% of our graduates to leave with NO student debt.

You may also qualify for scholarship opportunities, grants, military education benefits and loans that will help you achieve your educational goals.

Financial Aid

Completing the U.S. government’s Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the first step to receiving many types of financial assistance for college.

Financial Aid can be used to cover expenses like tuition and fees, books and supplies, transportation and child care, and is awarded in different forms: grants, loans, scholarships and work-study.

Some funds are first-come, first-served, so it’s best to complete the FAFSA by March 1, the priority deadline. The award year includes the fall, spring and summer terms.
