What are the steps to become a student at TCC?

In order to attend TCC, all new, incoming students must complete the following steps: 

Step 1. Apply for Admission

  • Apply for admission to TCC using our online application: http://www.tcc.fl.edu/admissions/apply/ 
  • After submitting the admission application you will receive an email to your personal email account that will include your TCC Student Identification number, TCC email address and password. Keep this page for your records as you will need this information to log in to TCC Workday Student and to access your TCC Outlook email.
  • Once you gain access to Workday Student, you will need to check your account for holds or actions items in order to complete your admission file.  
  • Florida Residency for tuition purposes.  Submit copies of the documents you need to prove that you or your parent/legal guardian are Florida residents (e.g., driver license, vehicle registration, voter’s registration card) that reflect an issue date of at least one year prior to the first day of class for the semester you plan to attend. Documents should be uploaded to the Docusign residency form, or submitted in-person to the Office of Admissions and Records or sent via email to ar@tcc.fl.edu.
