Service & Support
Community college students need specialized service and support to be successful. Many students balance a job, family and other responsibilities along with their academic work. And many students come to TCC as the first in their family to attend college. That’s why the TCC community offers an array of support services and programs dedicated to student support.
TCC Care Team
The CARE Team of Tidewater Community College is focused on caring, prevention, and early intervention for students experiencing serious distress or engaging in harmful or disruptive behaviors. Submitting a CARE Team Request ensures that students will quickly and confidentially get the help they need to persist in achieving their academic and career goals. Although the intention of the CARE Team is to be non-disciplinary, reports of students violating college policy may be referred to Student Conduct or Public Safety.
