TFC Offering First Responder Tuition Discount

Toccoa Falls College said it is offering 50 percent off tuition to all full time emergency first responders.

The school made the announcement earlier this month in recognition of National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day.

TFC President Dr. Robert Myers said the school wanted to do something tangible for all first responders including police officers, fire fighters, and emergency medical personnel.

The school said it will also waive the application fee.

School officials said there are a few criteria.

Those include that the individual must be employed full time as a police officer, firefighter, or EMS worker and that they must enroll by the Fall semester of 2015.
