The TUC Student Emergency Support Fund provides financial assistance to currently enrolled TUC students (Full or Part time) who are unable to meet immediate or essential expenses.


“Without these emergency funds, students are often forced to take a leave of absence uprooting them from their pursuit of medical, public health and education careers as well as their efforts to help our communities,” noted Provost and Chief Academic Officer Dr. Sarah Sweitzer. “Even a little, makes a big impact in the lives of our students and their families.”


TUC’s Student Emergency Fund has been made possible through a collaboration of campus partners, alumni and generous donors committed to helping students achieve their goal of graduating.


We hope that you will also join us as we seek to help those students who are in need.
