Advising

Get the most out of your TCC experience

Do you have college and career goals? It's so important for you to connect with an advisor as soon as possible in order to meet your goals and complete your program on time. Our advising staff can assist you with an academic plan to achieve your educational and career goals. Every student is assigned an Advising Center advisor or a faculty advisor from their major discipline.

 

Explore your options

Still trying to map out your future? Meet with an academic advisor or counselor to discuss academic and career opportunities. Or, you may know what degree you want to earn at TCC, but need help understanding what classes to take and when. We can help you chart the right course.

 

Plan for the future

When you’re ready to take the next step to transfer a four-year college or university, contact us for help with a smooth transition. We can also help you plan for a new career, or help you advance in your current career with one of our 29 professional/technical certificate programs.

 

Incoming transfer students

If you’re transferring coursework to TCC from another college, please submit your official transcripts for evaluation. This helps your advisor recommend the right classes for you. Need to submit an unofficial transcript? Email placement@tacomacc.edu

Stay on track

Working with an academic advisor can help you stay on track and make informed decisions about your future. They can also connect you to opportunities and resources across campus.

The Advising Center can assist you with:

  • Degree exploration
  • Course planning
  • Degree and general education requirements
  • Academic policies, regulations, and petitions
  • Options if you are having academic difficulty
  • Incoming student transfers and transcripts
