Cuyahoga Community College’s Full Tuition Assistance Program
Have you or your family experienced financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic? Cuyahoga Community College’s Full Tuition Assistance program can help.
The College will cover Cuyahoga County residents’ tuition costs for one year of a Tri-C credit program or for the duration of a noncredit program. You can start or continue your education ― or gain the skills you need to rejoin the workforce quickly ― without incurring tuition expenses.
The Full Tuition Assistance program can help:
- Unemployed individuals who lost employment and/or income due to COVID-19, seeking a short-term credential, advanced training or a degree to increase their employability.
- Graduating high school students who planned to attend a four-year college or university this fall but have to reconsider due to financial hardship.
- Current college students who are or were enrolled at a four-year college and can’t afford to return, but want to continue their education.
To be eligible, you must:
- Reside in Cuyahoga County
- Provide evidence of financial hardship due to COVID-19
- Enroll as a new or continuing Tri-C student for the Fall 2020 or Spring 2021 semester
- Additional program requirements are found in the Full Tuition Assistance FAQ document.
You must also complete the following:
- Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
- Loss of Income form, if applicable

Inside Ms Meyer's Classroom
Hello! My name is Breanna Meyers and I am the 10th-12th grade intervention specialist at our Lakewood campus. This is my first year at AEA. Before coming to AEA, I taught at Vermilion High School for the 2019-2020 school year. I earned my bachelor’s degree from Ashland University in May of 2019 in Special Education K-12 mild to moderate and moderate to intensive needs. I grew up in Lorain and currently still reside there with my parents, my fiance, and our twin daughters, Rosalie and Sophia. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also love reading and outdoor activities.
As I stated above, I work with students in grades 10-12. Currently, I am working with my students on their goals in reading comprehension, math, written expression and behavior. Resources I have used with my students are readworks articles, Minute Math worksheets, multi-question writing prompts for written expression, and student class work samples. On top of using these resources for my daily intervention, I have also been using materials from the Richards Reading Program to work with students on phonics skills who struggle with reading.
This year has been a tough year for students due to the COVID-19 pandemic with virtual and in-person learning. Some of my students have done outstanding with virtual learning and others have shown great improvement since returning to school in person from being virtual. I am blessed to have had the opportunity to work with them at AEA this year and I am looking forward to what lies ahead for the next school year.
