TCC’s Response to COVID-19

This page was last modified on April 6, 2020 at 09:36 am. This page will keep the TCC community informed of the college’s actions and any operating schedule changes as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Updates will be posted daily.

Quick Links

The health and well-being of our students, faculty and staff is our top priority. TCC has initiated a series of steps designed to mitigate the risk of transmission by promoting social distancing, a preventative measure recommended by the CDC. Visit this page frequently for updates.

We are committed to minimizing educational disruptions and helping students stay on track to complete their course work for the semester and, for those nearing graduation in May, to receive their degrees and certificates. This endeavor is complicated by many factors; examples include students’ unique circumstances and academic requirements for hands-on or lab assignments. In addition, TCC must observe regulations and requirements from state, federal and accrediting agencies.

This is uncharted territory for our country, and for our entire world. We are working to answer as many questions as possible as quickly as possible.
