    Since TCC is a community college it is pretty cheap compared to a university. They also give out scholarships to help if you need it. TCC has a lot of resources that you may need in your classes, such as tutors, books, computers, etc.

    Very cost-effective school. Gives a lot of financial aid and tuition is low. The quality of the school is amazing for the price you pay.

    For being a community college, I feel as though the education I am getting is phenomenal. I have had no problems with professors and many of them are willing to assist you outside of class if you ask. I highly recommend the Running Start program as well which allows you to get college credit while still in high school.
