Education for Everyone
One of the first questions every prospective student asks is, “Can I afford it?” Our answer is yes! It has long been the policy of TCCTC to keep tuition and other costs as low as possible. To assist students financially, TCCTC has a number of options available. Please direct inquiries and questions regarding financial arrangements to the Registrar’s Office.
Some congregations are willing to assist their students financially, knowing the fruit of their labor will be returned as increased leadership and service within those churches. Students are encouraged to ask their pastor or appropriate board member within their own congregation about this possibility. Upon request, TCCTC will gladly provide information regarding available programs or services on behalf of the student.
Interest-Free Payment Plans
Interest-free payment plans are also available for students (in good standing) who demonstrate the financial ability to make payments on time. Tuition must be paid in full by the end of the semester in which the student enrolls. Payment plans are designed by, and must be co-signed by, the registrar. Failure to meet the work or financial agreement will result in interest charges being applied and the withdrawal of this option for the following semester.
Student Spouse Discount
A student’s spouse may attend classes concurrently at a 50% tuition discount. Students must inform the Registrar’s Office to take advantage of this opportunity.
TCCTC has a very limited number of scholarships available. Before applying for any scholarship, students should first contact their own church for financial assistance. If the student’s church is unable to help directly, a pastoral recommendation must be presented as part of the scholarship application. This step is essential to be considered for a TCCTC scholarship.
Scholarships do not typically cover the cost of textbooks and materials, or a few specific courses. Please check with the registrar for exceptions. Scholarship recipients are required to attend all scheduled classes, as well as other activities, as determined by their program.
Verona Lee Kirby Scholarship for Women (when available)
This scholarship is in memory and honor of Verona Lee Kirby, the grandmother of one of TCCTC’s graduates. Mrs. Kirby was a passionate encourager of those she met. She was always prepared to share the gospel or her testimony with anyone who showed the slightest interest. As a teen, Verona wanted to pursue a life of animal husbandry but lived in a time when females were not allowed into the program. She worked at many jobs and eventually became one of the owners of the Cookie Shop in Lake City, Florida where she recognized and met the needs of many in need. Her family describes her as a true Proverbs 31 woman. The amount of the scholarship varies as funded. Recipients must have completed a student application and have an overall GPA of at least 2.50. Also, they must confess Christian faith and maintain the integrity of Christian character. To maintain the scholarship, recipients must attend TCCTC student orientation and the annual open house. Also, they must volunteer at least eight hours of service per semester for planned events.
TCCTC Partial Working Scholarship
This scholarship is awarded on an individual basis for those who agree to pay half of their tuition and work out the remaining half by assisting TCCTC in various ways. To be considered for this scholarship the student must demonstrate a financial need, complete a scholarship application, a working scholarship covenant form and apply to the Registrar’s Office two week prior to the start of classes.
TCCTC Full-Time Student Scholarship
This scholarship is awarded to the serious student who demonstrates a financial need. The scholarship applies to tuition costs in excess of six semester hours, and is awarded on a case-by-case basis. Students taking at least six semester hours, have a minimum of a 2.0 grade point average, and complete a scholarship application may apply to the Registrar’s Office two weeks prior to the start of classes.
TCCTC Full Tuition Scholarship
Only one such scholarship is offered each year and goes to the serious student who demonstrates a financial need and successful coursework performance at TCCTC in a previous semester. This scholarship covers tuition costs for one semester.
Come and See!
TCCTC’s Open House and Orientation is a great opportunity to get to know us.
