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.
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
