About the Program

At Durham Technical Community College, we understand that students may struggle from time to time to pay their expenses. Unexpected situations may make it difficult for our students to progress satisfactorily toward completion of their academic and career goals.

  • Be enrolled in an eligible program or approved continuing education certificate course;
  • Meet satisfactory academic progress; and have instructor complete Student Progress Report
  • Have a verifiable address;
  • Have a copy of current rent/mortgage, bills, etc.;
  • Be currently experiencing an unforeseen financial emergency;
