Steps to TCC

Accelerated students in public, private or home education programs are eligible to apply for the Dual Enrollment Program. Students can take classes that will satisfy their high school graduation requirements while also counting as college credit towards a TCC Associates degree. Students can also take courses that pertain to their major area(s) of interest. TCC waives all tuition and fees for dual-enrolled students.
