Tulsa Achieves Students—

                It's live! Our brand new, custom-built database is here. For current students, check your TCC Outlook email to activate your profile, your login and temporary password were sent on January 30, 2013.  If you do not have an email giving you that information, create your account using your TCC Outlook email.  When you go to create an account, if it states that 'your information is already in use' this means you have an account created and you should have received a password.  At this point, go to 'forgot password' and a new one will be sent your TCC Outlook email account.  To visit the database and browse for opportunities and events, just go to
