Your advisor is there to help you stay on course.
Work with your advisor to avoid mistakes like:
- Taking classes you don’t need
- Missing a class that is not offered every semester
- Missing a prerequisite for a required course.
Our Academic Advisors will be out of the office engaging in professional development on Friday, March 1, to enhance their skills and better serve our students.
They'll be back and ready to connect with you again starting Monday, March 4. We look forward to connecting soon!
Advising by Appointment
Currently enrolled students — schedule an appointment with your assigned academic advisor for personalized support.
Assigned Advisors help students with the following during appointments:
- Removing your academic advising hold
- Degree planning
- Discussing transfer options (if applicable)
- Discussing degree progression and goal achievement
- Making appropriate referrals to support services
If you have a time-sensitive issue or have not been assigned an advisor, a drop-in service is available, both on-campus or virtual, to determine your next steps.
Drop-In Advisor’s help with:
- Filing for graduation
- Withdrawing from a course/turning in audit paperwork
- Errors when registering for classes
- Changing majors
- Changing a course on their schedule
Before the start of the semester, you can use drop-in services to remove your academic advising hold if your assigned advisor's appointments are full. Please follow up with your assigned advisor on any advice you get to ensure it fits your plan.
No appointments are needed; students will be assisted on a first-come, first-served, virtual drop-in basis.

Your Responsibilities Each Semester
Degree Planning & Document Assistance
A degree audit through Degree Works helps you select courses that are required for your major and contains the following information:
- The classes that remain to be taken within the chosen major.
- Credits you’ve already completed that apply to the chosen major.
- Credits you’ve completed that do not apply to the chosen major.
In order to access your degree audit on Degree Works, you must first declare a major and then visit an Academic Advisor.
All previous college transcripts must be turned in to the Records and Student Completion Services office, so credits can be evaluated and updated on your TCC transcript.
If there are questions about college transfer credits or possible course substitutions that need to be applied, visit an Academic Advisor.
If you need to submit a paper transcript or have questions about completing the following forms we are here to help. Meet with your advisor with any questions.
