June 11, 2018

TCC logo on windowTALLAHASSEE, Fla. (June 11, 2018)–A new flexible pathway for returning adult students is already attracting attention at Tallahassee Community College, with dozens of inquiries from prospective enrollees from Gadsden, Leon and Wakulla counties.

On April 19, TCC announced that it would offer a unique guided path for working adult students seeking an Associate in Arts degree with an emphasis in business.

Those who choose the Flex Path Program enroll in two 8-week terms each Fall, Spring and Summer semester, taking six to seven credit hours per term. Those who follow the pathway and complete all requirements will graduate with their A.A. degree within two years.

The first eight-week term begins Monday, August 20. Students may choose from morning (7–9:45 a.m.) or evening (5:30–8:15 p.m.) classes to best fit their schedules. All classes will be presented in a hybrid format, with portions delivered online and portions face-to-face.

Flex Path students will have access to advising and academic support and will have guaranteed scheduling so they can make steady progress in their program. Financial aid and scholarships are available for those who apply and meet eligibility requirements.

TCC will host Flex Path Program information sessions in the Fine and Performing Arts Center on Friday, June 15, at 5:30 p.m., and Tuesday, June 26, at noon. All interested individuals are invited to attend.
