Welcome to Tarrant County College for the 2019-2020 academic year. As a former student of TCC, I am proud you chose to continue your education here.
This student handbook directs you to available college resources found at our six campuses. You will find information about student clubs and organizations, tutoring services, support for veterans, financial aid and scholarships, and intramural sports. TCC has something for everyone to make your experience more fulfilling and fun.
There are countless ways to make good use of your time at TCC. However, they all begin with you and your very best effort as a student. I encourage you to use the following tools.
First, be an active partner with your advisor. See them at least once each term if not more. They can help guide you in developing and completing your chosen pathway.
Second, know your instructors and go to all of their classes, as you are able. Stop by their office to introduce yourself, ask about class, and discuss your grades.
Third, get involved in a student organization. Find groups and activities you enjoy and additionally involve practical applications for your academic work. These activities are a great way to meet new people and make friends.
The last tool you need to help you succeed in college is time management. Make sure you are setting up enough time to get all your assignments done before the required deadline. Equally important, set aside time to keep yourself healthy.
No matter what your reason may be for coming to TCC, we are ready to support you. Your college experience begins now. Embrace the journey and opportunity.
