Financial Aid

Attending college is one of the best investments you will ever make in yourself. Financial aid is available to assist you with educational expenses when your resources do not fully meet college costs. At Tompkins Cortland Community College we are committed to helping you navigate the application process and maximize financial aid awards from all possible sources. Over 90% of students attending Tompkins Cortland Community College receive some form of financial aid such as grants, scholarships, loans, work-study, tuition waivers and veteran educational benefits.
