The program covers free tuition and fees for up to three years, including summer semesters.
Once you start receiving TFCC funds, you should aim to take classes every fall and spring semester. If you take a semester off, you can still remain enrolled in TFCC. But remember: You still only get up to 3 years of funding. If you take a semester off, you cannot get that semester of missed funding back. While it is not a requirement for TFCC, you should also try to take at least 10 college credits each semester. This will increase your chances of earning your associate degree within three years. Your academic advisor can help you stay on track.
Once enrolled in TFCC, you do not need to re-apply in following years. Complete your FAFSA each year to continue receiving the Pell grant (if eligible).
