I can count on an education where paying less doesn't mean getting less

Financial Aid

 College IS affordable. Tri-County awarded nearly $25 million in free financial aid and scholarships last year. And more good news -- Lottery Tuition Assistance has increased for the academic year. Students can receive up to $100 per credit hour if taking 6-11 credit hours, or a maximum amount of $1,200 for 12 or more credit hours.

Don't delay - complete your FAFSA information. FAFSA Fridays are held at each of our campuses from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. every Friday for Tri-County students who need assistance filling out the FAFSA application.

"As a mom with four children working an entry-level job, I was concerned how I would pay for college," said Jennifer. "Thanks to the Hayden Abney Fulp Scholarship and a Pell grant, I will graduate debt-free in 2015." Jennifer loves being challenged and admires technology, especially robots, so General Engineering Technology seemed a great major for her. "When I graduate, I will be a technician qualified to maintain and troubleshoot technology in the workplace."
