Planning to use financial aid? Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form at fafsa.ed.gov.
The FAFSA code for TCC is 003712, which must be listed on the FAFSA form in order for TCC to receive your information.
We can also help you identify and use your available military education benefits!
Log into your myTCC Portal and click the Navigate icon. Navigate is where you will be able to review and complete your to-do list, and make an appointment with an academic advisor.
TCC uses multiple measures, including the Virginia Placement Test, to determine a student’s readiness for college-level English and math courses.
You may be exempt from placement tests if you can demonstrate your readiness with previous high school course work, SAT/ACT scores and other criteria.
If you are a new student, submit your high school transcript (if you graduated within the last 5 years) or GED transcripts/scores (if taken in 2014 or later). TCC will evaluate your transcript to determine if you are exempt from taking math and/or English placement tests.
Email your transcript to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail a copy to:
Tidewater Community College
Admissions Processing, Suite 514
PO Box 9000
Norfolk, VA 23509-9000
You can also deliver a copy of your transcript to any campus admissions office (addresses are at the bottom of the page).
TCC’s academic advisors will help you select an academic program, register for classes and build a course schedule that fits your busy life. All new, curricular students are required to meet with an academic advisor before registering for their first semester.
Prepare to transition into college successfully by attending a free Orientation session on the campus where you’ll take most of your classes. Your family is welcome to attend, too!
You can browse available class schedules and register for classes through the Student Information System, located in myTCC. For more information, visit tcc.edu/enroll. Once you have registered, pay your tuition by the tuition deadline to avoid being dropped from your classes. You can find payment options and deadlines at tcc.edu/pay
