Foster Youth Student

Current or former foster youths living in Florida are eligible for a tuition exemption (free tuition) and fee waivers to attend TCC.

The college has established a Foster Care and Homeless Students Liaison to provide on-campus support for children and young adults who have been or remain in the foster care system and/or who are homeless as defined in Policy 6152. The Liaison’s primary responsibility is to assist these students in resolving any problems related to the tuition and fees exemptions specifically provided to these students under Policy 6152. For more information, contact Joy Steele at

Students attending TCC may also elect to participate in the Emerging Eagles program.
