Student Affairs

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.

Student support services

Student support services at TCC provides assistance to help students throughout their educational journey. 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.

Retention

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


Advising

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. All TCC students, including those in need of additional accessibility, as well as first-generation college students, can easily find the support and guidance they needed to navigate the collegiate experience at TCC.

Enrollment

Registration for classes at TCC is easier than it’s ever been. So much of the admission and enrollment process can be completed online, or with assistance from our dedicated staff.
