    Financial Assistance

    Financial assistance is available through the Tri County Tech Foundation for Full Time & Flex programs, as well as some Fast Track programs. After you are accepted into a program, you will receive a financial assistance application. The form must be filled out and turned in with the most recent two months of pay stubs for every working member of your household.

    Our main goal for financial assistance at Tri County Tech is to assist financially disadvantaged students who would be unable to get the education they deserve. Assistance consists of grants, scholarships, and employment. An individual might participate in one or more resources, depending upon eligibility and need.

    We do not accept funds from FAFSA or PELL.
