General Information

The TCC Hispanic Alliance for Talented Students (H.A.T.S.) is a newly launched opportunity that promotes intercultural understanding and empowerment for Hispanic students. This program launches a new cohort of Hispanic students each academic year term and encourages students from the Leon, Gadsden, Wakulla, or surrounding counties (within the state of Florida) to join. These students will matriculate at TCC together as they are placed in similar courses and activities that engage them in career building and goal-setting enrichment sessions, and allows the opportunity to participate in many more empowering initiatives.

As the cohort progresses throughout the academic year, students of this program will be provided holistic support through being paired with committed mentors. Additionally, the students will be highly encouraged to join other TCC organizations that will help build and enhance their resumes.

To apply to the program a student is required to:

  • Be of Hispanic descent
