Clubs and Organizations
 

Looking for a way to get more involved and enhance your experience at TCC? Join one of our student clubs or organizations! TCC has a variety of student organizations that are sponsored by the college for the growth, development and enjoyment of the students involved. Each organization has a different emphasis, such as service, interest/activity, political, competitive, academic and/or religious in nature. However, they have several things in common, such as funding, open membership, social interaction, leadership opportunities, campus involvement, and institutional involvement.

Research shows that students who are involved in extracurricular activities have a higher GPA, a higher retention rate, and a greater sense of enjoyment during their time in college. They also gain important networking skills and opportunities that dramatically increase the student's options for job and career placement.

There are many options available for your involvement in campus student organizations, so check out the groups already on campus. If you don't see what you're looking for, contact the Involvement Coordinator at foxem@tcc.fl.edu​.​

 Advisor Resources

 

A club or organization advisor is a faculty or staff member who provides support and guidance to officers and members of a student organization. The advisor not only serves as a representative of the group in an official capacity, but also as a student advocate. An advisor is one who gives ideas, shares insight, provides a different perspective, and encourages organization members. An advisor is a full time faculty and/or staff member of TCC that agrees to be an educational resource and consultant for an organization and its members. The advisor should be a caring individual with a genuine interest for students, the organization, and their programs and activities.

  • Encourage and assist the student organization in setting & reaching goals

 Recognition for Existing Organizations

 

All groups submitting an application must meet the following criteria to become a Recognized Student Organization.

  • Current student organizations are required to submit a student organization re-recognition form for the upcoming academic year to the SLICE Office no later than August 1 to maintain a registered status and to avoid suspension of recognition at the College, and loss of A&S funding. This is available starting April 1 on Connect TCC.
  • Each organization is required to meet with the Involvement Coordinator. These meetings are designed to help student organizations understand the resources and guidelines associated with maintaining RSO status. Meetings can be set-up by emailing the Involvement Coordinator listed previously in the handbook.
  • The officers of an RSO must be currently enrolled TCC students, maintain a minimum 2.5 GPA, and be free of any obligation of fees or payments to the College.
  • Each organization is required to have at least Three (3) officers or executive members, one (1) of which is responsible for presiding over the organization, one (1) of which must be responsible for recording minutes, and one (1) of which is responsible to the organization fiscal operations.
  • All organizations must have a minimum of 10 members who are currently enrolled TCC students. This information will be verified by the Student Leadership, Involvement, and Civic Engagement Office.
  • All required recognition forms and updated student membership roster must be submitted to the appropriate office by the specified deadline as set forth by the SLICE Office.
  • All organizations must draft and submit a current local constitution and submit it with annual recognition application. 
  • Each organization must have an advisor who serves as a full time faculty or full time staff member of TCC. Graduate or undergraduate students (including Graduate Assistants and Teaching Assistants), adjunct professors, and part-time OPS workers may not serve as advisors.
  • The president must complete the Re-Registration Form on Connect TCC.
  • The student organization officer responsible for the finances of the organization is required to attend a financial workshop sponsored by the A&S Budget Coucnil and SLICE Office prior to the use of any organization funds.
  • To maintain recognition status, each student organization must adhere to all rules and regulations of the SLICE Office and the College  to maintain recognition status at TCC.
  • All student organizations must adhere to the Tallahassee Community College Organization Point System in order to properly be assessed for organizational activity.
  • Note: The recognition process is not complete until the advisor and the president receive an approval email from the Student Leadership, Involvement, and Civic Engagement Office.
