T3 Program Benefits at TCC

By attending this partner college, T3 Scholars receive the following benefits and support to help you to and through your postsecondary journey:

  • Last Dollar Tuition-Free Scholarship: Effective Fall 2021, all income eligible T3 Scholars will receive a “last dollar” tuition-free scholarship to TCC for up to 8 consecutive semesters or the completion of a certificate or associate degree. This scholarship will cover any remaining tuition costs after all Pell grants and/or other federal, state, or institutional aid have been applied. Check out the scholarships page for more details.
  • Bridge Programming: Required for scholars attending a partner college/university, there are three components to the T3 Bridge Program to complete before your first semester. Be sure to check your personal email for more info beginning spring semester your senior year. You will hear directly from TCC about Orientation and other requirements to register for classes.
  • College Persistence Coaching & Resources: If you need additional guidance throughout your time at TCC, one-on-one and group advising and support are available to T3 Scholars to ensure you are successful. You also have access to T3 Connect, a virtual platform to network, stay connected and informed, and engage with community mentors.
  • Emergency Funding: Our goal is to ensure you stay enrolled. Should an emergency occur, learn more about the TCC Student Emergency Assistance Fund (SEAF). Scholars have access to additional funding and the amount depends on your application and approved expenses.
  • Transfer Resources: Should you choose to transfer to a T3 partner university, transfer student support and resources will be available throughout your transition.
