Why attend TCC?

A community college is an ideal choice if you're an international student. We have affordable out-of-country tuition and small class sizes. With 6 campuses to choose from, TCC has many advantages:

  • Smaller class sizes
  • Individualized attention from professors
  • Lower tuition cost
  • Class credit transferable to 4-year universities
  • Ideal environment to adapt to American academic practices

Many international students attend TCC to earn an associate degree and then transfer to a 4-year university in the United States to earn their bachelor's degree.


You are expected to pay all tuition and fees at the time of registration.

The College does not provide:

  • Financial assistance programs
  • Student housing
  • Public transportation
