Starting on the Path to Your Future: Frequently Asked Questions
Deciding where to go to college and what to study can be intimidating and confusing. You likely have dozens of questions and are getting overwhelmed by the amount of information available to you. Here we’ve answered some of the most common questions we hear from students.
Q: I’m not sure if I can afford Tucson College. What are my options?

We want to make that process as easy as possible for you, which is why we have Financial Services Representatives ready to discover ways to help. Financial aid is available for those who qualify. For more information, visit our Financial Services page.
Q: How do I apply for financial aid?
A: The first step to receiving financial aid after calling one of our Financial Services Representatives is to complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This is a federal program designed to help you assess your needs and the availability of different funds. Financial aid is available for those who qualify. If you need assistance filling out your FAFSA, call us at 866.844.6732 and a Student Aid Advisor will help you complete your application in as little as 15 minutes.
Q: I work during the day. Will I still be able to enroll and complete a program?
A: Absolutely! All Tucson College programs are designed to work with today’s busy lifestyles.
Q: I’m a single parent. Are there options for me?
A: We understand that not everyone can make time for classes during the day. In fact, many of our students are working parents or single parents, and they’ve found our programs flexible enough to reach their career goals.
Q: I’m not sure what career I want. How will I know which program is the best fit for me?
A: At Tucson College, we offer several programs, each designed with a student-centered focus. When you enroll, you will meet with one of our Career Services team members who will get to know you and your career goals. From there, they will help match your interests and goals with one of our programs.
Q: How long will it me take to complete a program at Tucson College?
A: It depends on the program you choose. Most of our programs can be completed in as little as nine months.
Q: Will you help me find a job when I graduate?
A: Yes! We designed our Graduate Placement Strategy (GPS) to help you find a job after you graduate. You will leave Tucson College with a résumé, a career portfolio, and the skills you need to succeed in an interview. At Tucson College, the GPS will guide you from classroom to career. Even after you graduate, you’ll benefit from our Lifetime Career Assistance, empowering you to succeed for the rest of your career.
