TCC Announces Free Tuition for Dual Credit Students

Tarrant County College announced that the College is waiving tuition for all dual credit students, following a unanimous vote by its Board of Trustees.

The waiver applies to all dual credit courses for the fall 2023 semesters.  Students who have already paid their fall tuition for dual credit classes will receive a refund early in the fall semester.

“The TCC Board of Trustees made a bold move and voted to waive tuition for dual credit students to support the objective of more credentials for high school students, our future workforce,” said TCC Chancellor, Dr. Elva LeBlanc.

During the 88th Texas Legislature, policymakers enacted House Bill 8, redefining the way Texas Community Colleges are funded through state allocations.
