TTC students are smart. 

They know that they are getting a quality education for less than half the tuition of most other colleges, giving them the opportunity to graduate with little or no student debt.

TTC students are resilient. 

Almost half of our students are the first in their family to attend college, and achieving that goal can be an uphill battle.

TTC students are dedicated. 

They are working hard to change the course of their lives, creating a lasting impact on their families - and our community - for generations to come.
