Early Admission (High School Completion)

High School Completion is a fast-track program where international students can begin their university classes earlier than their peers and receive their High School Diploma from the United States.

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS:

  • Must be at least 16 years of age
  • Students are not eligible if they have already graduated from High School in their home country or in the United States

PROGRAM COMPONENTS:

Degree Requirements: All gradutes of Tacoma Community College who have not received a High School Diploma will be awarded their diploma at completion of their Associate's degree. Therefore, High School Completion students must complete all coursework towards their Associate of Arts or Science degree and apply for graduation.

Graduation: Following graduation, the international student will receive their Associate's Degree and their High School Diploma from Tacoma Community College.

2+2 Bachelor's Degree

Upon completion of your two-year Associate degree at Tacoma Community College, students are encouraged to apply to one of our Guaranteed Transfer Partners to continue their studies or apply for admission to a University of their choice. Either way, the majority of students will only have two years remaining in their studies to complete a U.S. Bachelor's degree.
