TCC Virtual Reference: Financial Assistance for Students

Dear Student,

On April 9, 2020 Tarrant County College (TCC) received notice from the Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, of the availability of funding from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Securities (CARES) Act. The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) provides Colleges and Universities with money for direct financial assistance to students.

These funds must be provided to students to help cover expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). This can include eligible expenses under a student's cost of attendance such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, transportation and childcare.

As a TCC student enrolled in Spring 2020 with a completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), you are eligible to receive funding from the HEERF Grant.

Please log into Self-Service Financial Aid to view your updated 2019-2020 Award Letter. A $600 HEERF Emergency Grant will be disburse to you through BankMobile. We encourage you to confirm your BankMobile refund selection and sign up for their text alerts.

Additional Financial Resources

  • If you have additional expenses in excess of this $600 HEERF Emergency Grant that are related to the disruption of campus operations due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), you may request an additional $400 by completing an online request form. Please monitor your myTCC email for more information.
  • Please remember that TCC has an emergency fund (Eliminating Barriers) to support students experiencing financial emergencies that put at risk their ability to remain in school. To learn about eligibility and to apply, click here.

While our spring semester has evolved in unexpected ways, remember that we are committed to ensuring you achieve your educational goals. We care. We are with you on this journey. So, again, stay connected through your myTCC email, visit the TCC website, and be on the lookout for new ways to engage with us!

Take care and stay connected to TCC,
