Student Emergency Fund
TU understands that unfortunate circumstances happen! In addition to the Student Emergency Fund outlined on this page, please know that there are services in the Thomasville area available for those in the area. You can access the online directory here.
Financial circumstances can change quickly, at times in ways in which we have little or no control. We understand financial hardship can bring significant stress and impact your ability to succeed at TU. We are committed to your success and stand ready to support you in all ways possible to help you overcome your financial hurdles and continue your education at TU.
