We strive to provide a high level of personal support in various fields to meet the diverse needs of students during their time at Tusculum College. Some of the services the College provides free of charge to students include:
Tusculum College employs a health educator to administer basic first aid to students in need. The health educator can distribute non-prescription medications and make appointments with local physicians. The primary role of Tusculum’s health educator is to serve as an educational resource to the student community and to provide information to students to address current student health issues.
Tusculum College has secured the services of a licensed counselor to meet with students for short-term counseling at no cost. The counselor assists students in dealing with the everyday stress of college life or other issues.

The Office of Career Services serves two functions:
- Career choice and development and
- Employment skills development
Services include personal meetings, seminars and advising regarding choice of academic major and/or career directions. Students are encouraged to begin career development programs upon entering Tusculum and continue then throughout their college experience. The office also maintains current information about full-time, part-time and internship opportunities.

Tusculum College affirms its intent to comply with federal regulations regarding persons with disabilities, specifically with section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
