Apply for Financial Aid

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You can apply online at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/ . Texas County Technical College’s school code is 035793.

After you have completed your FAFSA, you will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) from The Department of Education confirming your information on the FAFSA. Please review the information.  If any corrections need to be made, please notify the college where the financial aid staff can help you with those corrections.

Texas County Technical College will receive your FAFSA information within 7-10 days. This is the first step for TCTC to begin estimating your financial aid package.
