Home from college? Get ahead on your studies

6-week classes start July 5, and there's still time to apply for financial aid!

This is your summer to get ahead. TCC’s 12-, 10-, 8-, and 6-week summer sessions are a smart and affordable way to earn credits in less time. With classes conveniently offered in Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Virginia Beach and online, there’s something for everyone.

Search TCC’s class schedule to find a course that fits your schedule.

IMPORTANT: If you plan to transfer credits, consult with an academic advisor at your home institution before enrolling.

Follow these steps

Step 1: Apply for Admission & Activate Your Student Account

Apply to TCC using our free online application. You can save your application and finish it later.

After you complete the application, you will receive a confirmation email with immediate feedback on your application status and a link to set up your student account through the myTCC portal.

Step 2: Submit the Prerequisite Waiver

If the TCC course you want to take has pre-requisites, the online prerequisite waiver demonstrates you have met them at your home college or university.

Get the form

  • You will need to submit a waiver for each TCC course you want to take.
  • You will also need to provide an unofficial transcript from your home institution.
Step 3: Register for Classes

After TCC has processed your waiver, you will be cleared to register for your class or classes using the online registration system.

Students wishing to enroll through the Virginia Tidewater Consortium for Higher Education should submit the Student Cross-Registration form, with the home institution information completed, to the Enrollment Services Office on the campus of the course. 

Step 4: Pay Your Tuition

Pay your tuition and fees by the deadline specified in the academic calendar.
