Your Wellness is Our Why
Although COVID makes the news a lot less often, life still tends to throw us unexpected curve balls that can interrupt our already busy and often uncertain lives. That’s why Tri-County Technical College prioritizes your wellness as a student and as an individual.
At TCTC, our Wellness Resources are aimed to support you in a variety of ways: intellectually, physically, socially, spiritually, environmentally, financially, occupationally, and psychologically. We understand that you are a unique individual experiencing unique circumstances and that life extends beyond the classroom.
We are here to support you along the way.
Through the MyGroup Student Assistance Program, we are able to offer our Tri-County students access to free counseling by a licensed professional.
Through the TCTC Student Support Pantry, we are able to provide you with access to food with our on-site Food Pantry. Also, if your housing is insecure and you need assistance finding a new place to live, we can offer you the helpful resources you need to make the best decision for your future.
Through our Student Support programs, we are able to extend financial assistance to currently enrolled students who are experiencing extenuating, emergency situations that could hinder their opportunities to stay in school.
Are you a parent or guardian? Through the Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) grant provided by the United States Department of Education, we are able to pay for childcare or after-school care of the children of our currently enrolled students.
Our extensive wellness resources for our students also include benefit assistance through SCThrive, transportation assistance, healthy relationships resources, prevention programs, academic challenges resources, and community wellness resources.
No matter what you have gone through or are going through, we are here to help you succeed at school and in life. Your wellness truly is the “why” of our many TCTC faculty and staff members.
