The Community Connections Scholarship provides tuition assistance for part-time students who are new to the school and enrolling for the Spring 2021 semester.
Recipients have their tuition costs reduced to just $50 per credit (up to six credits).
To be eligible, students must have not previously matriculated in a degree program at TC3.
Degrees can still be obtained part-time.

“With the pandemic still affecting people in so many ways so close to home, we knew we had to make an effort to make educational opportunity even more accessible. The Community Connections Scholarship gives local residents a chance to start on their path to a degree – and along with that new job opportunities and security – with a significantly reduced financial burden,” said College President Orinthia Montague. “We know there are good, high-paying jobs available in our area for people with the right skills. This gives them a chance to get those skills and – with our various online, in-class, and hybrid options – do so with a flexible schedule that fits their busy lives. Our role as a community college is to respond to community need, and this is one way we knew we could make a positive impact immediately.”
