Tunxis Community College is encouraging all financial aid applicants to electronically apply for student financial aid. The U.S. Department of Education is actively and continually making electronic delivery of student financial aid a reality for all students.
You do not need to own a personal computer to electronically apply for financial aid; however, you do need to have use of a computer with Internet access. Many public libraries (including the Tunxis Library), high schools, adult education centers and community centers offer FREE computer with internet access to students.
To participate in filing electronically for financial aid you must possess a basic understanding of a personal computer and Internet use. If you are having trouble electronically filing for financial aid please contact the Financial Aid Office at 860.773.1422 for assistance, or contact the Federal Student Aid Info Center toll free at (800) 433-3243.
Please file your FASFA information as soon as possible but be aware that Tunxis Community College will not be able to determine your financial aid ability until you are accepted in a degree or eligible certificate program. If you are a new student you must apply for admissions immediately or call 860.773.1490.
You should complete your applications at least twelve weeks before you want to enroll.
