Computers for
Student Success


The Program refurbishes computers and donates them to deserving students and non-profits.

It is nearly impossible to succeed in college classes without a computer. We hope to increase student success by providing refurbished computers to deserving TCC students. With 42,000+ students attending TCC it is a big job. We also assist non-profits with needed computers and lab setup. In the process, volunteer IT and Computer Science students receive valuable hands-on training in computer repair and get to help their fellow students and the community.
