Is funding available to take classes in Workforce Solutions?
Yes, there are several sources of financial assistance available to Workforce students. Certain programs approved as FastForward courses receive state funding to reduce the cost to Virginia residents to 1/3 of the total cost. If you meet established criteria for financial need, you may qualify to pay only ten percent of that 1/3 of the cost for those FastForward programs. Details and the application are at https://workforce.tcc.edu/financial-assistance Some employers pay for their employees to take job-related training. Grants and Sponsored Programs meet the needs of many special populations and include funding for the courses. Call 757-822-1234 for additional information.
Can students convert any of the training received through Workforce into credit for courses in the occupational/technical programs at TCC?
TCC has in place several means of applying for credit through standardized and local exams, training through non-collegiate institutions, and Noncredit to Credit Pathways. (See the most recent TCC Catalog for more information: https://www.tcc.edu/academics/catalog/)
