Access to Online Services
Access to registration and all other online services is secured by each student’s User ID and self-assigned TCC password. Registration and other services are available through WebAdvisor at myTCC.
Auditing a Course
Students who have been admitted to the College may audit courses on a space-available basis. Audit registration is permitted only after registration has ended and before the class begins. No college credit is awarded for audited courses. Students who already have credit for a course must comply with the College’s policy on repetition of courses. The cost for auditing courses is the same as registration for credit. Senior citizens (persons 65 years of age or older) are permitted to audit credit and continuing education courses without payment of tuition (unless enrolled in Senior Education Program).
Audit students must meet the same prerequisites to enroll in a course as a credit student. However, they are not required to take examinations and no grades are assigned. Audit students are required to conform to the same conduct in the classroom and on campus as credit students.
Students already registered for credit may not change from credit to audit status during audit registration or at any time during the session. Students registered for audit may not change their enrollment to credit status during or following audit registration.

No priority registration is offered for the Summer term.
