A Veteran Affairs or Vocational Rehabilitation counselor will reach out to the TPC for a quote for either a computer bundle or other needed technology items. TPC computer bundles are tailored to your requirements of your educational program.

After the quote is approved by the counselor, authorization will be sent through Tungsten by VA to TPC and the items will be special ordered or pulled from our inventory (if available).

When items are ready for pick up you will be notified by the TPC. If your items are being shipped to you, we will contact you with shipment information when the packages have been sent.
