Community college students need specialized service and support to be successful. That’s why the TCC’s student affairs offers an array of support services and programs.

Student services are designed to enhance and facilitate student learning and growth both academically and socially and are available to all students regardless of their location of attendance.

TCC serves students seeking employment, military-related, current or former foster youth, international students, or are interested in intercultural learning, women’s issues and artistic events.

Student Life and Conduct

Student life at TCC encompasses the entire collegiate experience. Along with classroom and laboratory work, various clubs and organizations are available to broaden and deepen students’ views. Leadership opportunities in student government are encouraged and student centers on each campus offer a wide variety of study and entertainment facilities.


At TCC, students’ academic success is important. Remediation, monitoring, and testing are all in place to assist students on their paths to success.


Advising is critical to student success at TCC. Students meet with advisors as part of admission and enrollment – and as an ongoing component of their education.
