At Denmark Technical College, it is our mission to engage, educate, and empower students. In the face of the COVID-19 global pandemic, students have faced unprecedented challenges. We are determined not to allow financial barriers to stand in the way of the citizens of our community achieving their academic and career goals.

The Denmark Technical College Tuition Relief Program offers new, current and returning students up to 100% tuition and fee relief for the summer and fall 2022 semesters.

This includes full-time and part time students, in-state, out-of-state and international students, returning students, new students and students who have taken a break and are returning to school.
