When should I apply for financial aid?
When applying for financial aid make sure to start the process at least six weeks before the deadline. Because some funds are limited and awarded to eligible priority applicants only, this will give you the best shot at getting the maximum amount of aid possible. Don’t forget: All students must apply for aid every school year. At TCC the school year starts with the fall quarter.
