Financial Aid for Continuing Education (Non-Credit)

If you're taking a continuing education (CE) workforce course, your tuition can be funded with the Texas Public Educational Grant (TPEG). CE TPEG funding is available if you're an eligible student with demonstrated need, and you enroll in continuing education workforce courses.

You may also apply for scholarship opportunities with the TCC Foundation.

CE TPEG Funding Unavailable

Funding for the 2022–2023 CE TPEG Grant is currently unavailable.

Please monitor this page for updates or contact the Financial Aid office for more information.


How much of my school costs will CE TPEG funding cover?

You may be awarded up to $400 per quarter with an annual maximum of $1,600. Award is tuition-based only.

You are responsible for purchasing your books and paying any remaining unpaid tuition.

If you are enrolled in certain higher cost programs, you may receive higher quarterly amounts but are still subject to the $1,600 annual limit.

Am I eligible for a CE TPEG grant?

To be eligible for a CE TPEG grant, you must:

  • Demonstrate financial need,
  • Enroll in a state formula-funded class,
    • State formula-funded classes are career or occupational courses and can be identified in WebAdvisor by the 4th character in the course rubric (I.e., ACNT-1002). Generally, all course rubrics with a letter other than X in the 4th character are approved for stating funding and are eligible for TPEG awards.
  • Have your academic progress evaluated annually in August, and
  • Receive a grade of CR in 50% of the courses for which you enroll, in order to maintain your eligibility for the next academic year.

If you receive other tuition assistance resources, you may not be eligible for CE TPEG.

If you have been awarded financial aid for credit courses (by completing your FAFSA), you are ineligible for CE TPEG during the same academic year.
