Update

4/24/2020
Dear Tunxis Students,

As you may have seen, the recently enacted federal CARES Act includes a distribution of funds to institutions of higher education, including Tunxis Community College. A significant portion of this funding will be reserved to provide students with grants to help cover expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to COVID-19.

***To avoid delays in receiving the grant, please consider immediately enrolling in direct deposit by following the link below or clicking on the “Direct Deposit” box directly on the homepage of MyCommnet. Please also review for the accuracy of your address and any direct deposit information already on file.

Please note the following important terms of the grant:

  • This grant is to be used as direct assistance for expenses related to the disruption of your studies during the spring 2020 semester, such as: food, housing, materials, technology, health care, and child-care expenses.
  • Even if you have an outstanding balance on your account, your grant will not be reduced.
  • This funding does not impact your financial aid award.

Eligibility: The U.S. Department of Education has put in place a number of eligibility requirements in order to receive the funding. We are in the process of reviewing the federal requirements and will provide further communication in coming days.

For questions on direct deposit enrollment, please contact the Tunxis Cashier’s Office at tx-cashiering@txcc.commnet.edu.

We are working as quickly as possible to process the funding, and we currently estimate the money to be disbursed in May, but the timing is subject to change. Students on direct deposit can expect the grant to be deposited sooner than those receiving checks – so enroll today.

I will continue to provide you with information as it becomes available.

Sincerely,

Dr. Darryl Reome
Campus CEO
Tunxis Community College
