Admission Qualifications & Requirements
Admission criteria are the minimum standards established by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. Although they provide for “open door” admission to TCC, certain programs require additional standards to be met before a student is admitted.
Qualifications for Admission
The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education require students to document their prior education within completion of the first nine credit hours of college coursework.
You may enroll for your first term at TCC without presenting your credentials (ex: high school transcript or transcripts from other colleges attended), but you must submit the required records prior to re-enrollment to avoid an enrollment hold.
For questions, visit any TCC Academic Advising office.
The Oklahoma State Regents require students to clear all curricular and/or academic performance deficiencies within their first 24 credit hours of college coursework. Students who have not removed all deficiencies or demonstrated appropriate proficiencies at the time will have a hold placed on enrollment and must work with a TCC academic advisor, who will recommend appropriate courses to clear all remaining curricular and/or academic performances deficiencies. For questions, visit any TCC Academic Advising office.
The college student is considered a responsible adult. The student’s admission indicates acceptance of those standards of conduct which appear in the Student Code of Conduct. The Student Code of Conduct is published in the Student Handbook and a printed copy can be provided upon request.
