When will I know if I'm accepted?

Once we've received all of your documents, the application review process will take about 2–3 weeks to finish. You will then be contacted via email with an admission decision or a request for additional documentation.

What do I do next?

Once you're accepted, you must submit the following documents before registering for classes:

  • Proof of health insurance. This will be required before you're allowed to enroll. Health insurance must be purchased for the entire academic year and must show the coverage dates. TCC does not provide health insurance.
  • A degree plan of the major you are pursuing at TCC.
  • An email you create and send via your myTCC account. myTCC is the official TCC email system you will use while you're a student.

Once you've submitted these items, learn about studying at TCC and how to register for classes.
