Before Class Starts
Apply and Register
Be mindful of the registration deadlines.
Dual/Concurrent credit students must be admitted to Tarrant County College and have all paperwork completed at the time of registration. This includes fulfilling vaccination requirements (if required), testing, and prerequisites. Students will need to act on their own behalf and will need to present a photo ID for any transactions at the college.
Students without a social security number
We recommend students without a social security number follow up with their high school representative and Tarrant County College Coordinator of Dual Credit to provide any available residency documentation. Residency for tuition purposes is established based on information provided on the application. Please contact the Admissions and Registrar’s Office for further information on residency.
Visit the Apply Texas application instructions for more information.
In addition to meeting the college level placement required for each course, students should review the Tarrant County College Catalog for course prerequisite information. Prerequisites vary depending on the subject. Please refer to the college catalog for more information
Please note additional testing may be required for placement into higher-level math courses (above MATH 1314, College Algebra).
Dual credit students taking classes online must successfully complete an online readiness assessment at least 24 hours before enrolling in an online course.
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA)
All financial records, such as payment due reminders, will be sent through the student’s myTCCD email address. Due to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, TCC cannot discuss or release the student’s financial or educational records to anyone other than the student without the student’s written authorization. Our page on FERPA may help answer specific questions since most dual credit students are minors.
