We understand that “life happens” and unexpected circumstances can take a toll on well-being, goals, and academic success. Student Support is available to students to provide resources and support so that students can manage personal and academic challenges as they pursue their academic goals. Services are available at all campuses by appointment. Appointments and inquiries can be made via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below are the ways that Wellness Programs can assist students.

Food and Emergency Housing Assistance
Students are able to learn better when they are well nourished. Eating healthy meals has been linked to higher grades, better memory and alertness, and faster information processing. Students who get the nutrition they need are more likely to graduate and live happier, more productive lives. We offer an on-site Food Pantry that serves as a bridge to connections with our community partners that provide assistance.
Easy application process and minimum documentation required to apply. Agencies can pay back rent up to 12 months and pay 3 months forward:
Students from all three counties can pick up information from the Student Support Office (SSC 120). Resources are available at all community campuses as well.

Emergency Fund Assistance
Student Support is committed to supporting student success. To assist students, Student Support has established an Emergency Fund to assist currently enrolled TCTC students who are in an emergency situation and at risk of not continuing their education due to unexpected financial dilemmas. The funds (pending availability) are granted on a case- by- case basis and are used to assist with academic related issues, such as books, academic supplies, etc. Student must meet eligibility for program. For non-academic needs, such as utilities, rent, etc, students will be referred to community agencies.
Applicants must meet the following criteria:
Lack of affordable child care presents a significant barrier for students. Tri-County has received a Child Care Access Means Parents In School (CCAMPIS) grant from the U.S. Department of Education to help ensure our most vulnerable students have an opportunity to remain in school. We also have partnerships with many organizations to help with childcare needs. Learn more by emailing Kaila Sigman, CCAMPIS Childcare Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling at 864-646-4560.
CCAMPIS pays for childcare and/or afterschool programs for children 0-12 years of age on the parent’s behalf during the semester.
