Paying for TCL


TCL offers higher education at a low price. Financial aid and scholarship packages make it more affordable (or even free).

The first step is to complete the federal government’s Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at TCL’s school code is 009910. Here’s a BIG tip, start the financial aid process early because it takes time to complete! Remember, Financial Aid qualifications vary.
