Apply to TCC

It’s free & easy to apply to TCC

TCC’s free application for admission is the first step towards enrollment at Tidewater Community College. In order to attend TCC classes, you must apply to TCC with an application.

Applying to TCC is free and easy, but there are a few things you want to make sure you get right on the application to avoid extra steps on your journey toward becoming a student!  

  • When you start the application, you will be redirected to a new page where you will be instructed to create an account and begin.
  • Read all the application questions carefully and do your best to respond to everything accurately.
  • Skipping a response or giving an incomplete answer (i.e. not providing your social security number or failing to indicate that you plan to apply for financial aid) will create additional steps for you later.

To qualify for general admission, you must have a high school diploma, its equivalent, OR be 18 years of age or older, and be able to benefit from a program of study at Tidewater Community College.

If you have any questions with the steps to apply or need help with the application, don’t hesitate to reach out.
