Apply for Admission
- Apply for admission to TCC using our online application.

- If you were not able to upload your residency documents at the time of application, please remember to provide copies of the residency documents (e.g., driver’s license, vehicle registration, voter’s registration card) that reflect an issue date of at least one year prior to the first day of class for the semester you plan to attend to the Office of Admissions and Records.
