    Although Tougaloo is expensive, financial aide is going to try to get you as much funding as possible so you don't have that many loans. They don't want to see you in debt, so they post a lot of scholarships often. I honestly feel that the history, and the education is 110% worth the money.

Tougaloo, unlike other colleges, is a place that you as a fresh person will soon be able to call home. I promise you won't regret choosing to attend thee historic Tougaloo College.

I work full time and I currently have a 3.18 G.P.A. This has been made possible through the willingness of most professors to assist their students.
