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. Dual enrolled students must choose either an Associate in Arts Pathway or an Associate in Science Pathway. TCC waives all tuition and fees for dual-enrolled students.

Meet Admissions Criteria

Meet with your high school guidance counselor to verify you meet admissions criteria and determine if dual enrollment is right for you.

Apply to TCC

  1. Apply for admission to TCC using our online application. Be sure to complete the Dual Enrollment application to avoid delayed processing time.
