Financial Assistance

Our main goal for financial assistance at Tri County Tech is to provide assistance for 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.

The family of a student is expected to make a maximum effort to assist the student with educational expenses. Financial assistance from Tri County Tech and other sources are only viewed as supplementary to their efforts.

The total amount of financial assistance offered to a student by Tri County Tech and all other sources shall not exceed the amount of demonstrated need.

Financial assistance is available through the Tri County Tech Foundation for Full Time & Flex classes, as well as some Fast Track Classes. 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 (2) months of pay stubs for every working member of your household.

We do not accept funds from FAFSA or PELL.

The Tri County Tech Foundation

The Tri County Tech Foundation stands committed to its mission of supporting Tri County Tech by providing opportunities and assistance that allow students to be successful in their selected programs of study and of never denying a student enrollment due to lack of funds.

Today, the Tri County Tech Foundation has a phenomenal commitment from TCT staff members, with 100% of TCT staff contributing over $82,000 annually to the Foundation.
