Early registration for the spring 2018 semester at Tri-County Community College is happening now for new and returning students at both the main campus in Peachtree and Graham County Center in Robbinsville.
“Early registration provides an opportunity for students to ensure they are fully prepared for the spring semester,” said Lee Beal, director of enrollment management at Tri-County Community College.
According to Beal, due to new regulations passed through the North Carolina legislature, new students at the college, as well as any student who did not enroll in classes during 2017, must complete a Residency Determination Service interview to verify their residency status before submitting an application to the college.
“The early registration period will give those students enough time to complete their residency determination interview, as well as other enrollment processes,” Beal said. “The priority deadline to submit an admissions application for the spring semester is Dec. 13.”
The early registration period runs until Dec. 13, Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and from 8:00 a.m. to noon on Friday, with the exception of Nov. 10.
“We recognize our students have busier lives than ever, so this semester the college is providing more flexible class options to help students complete their degrees as quickly and efficiently as possible,” said Steve Wood, vice president for instruction and institutional effectiveness at Tri-County Community College. “We are now offering fully-online degree programs including the Associate of Arts in College Transfer, as well as the Associate of Applied Science degrees in Business Administration, Accounting, Office Administration, Early Childhood and Criminal Justice.”
Students registering during the early registration period also can take advantage of many on-campus resources such as financial aid assistance, career exploration and degree evaluations.
“In registering early, students who may be close to completing their degrees can request a degree evaluation to help choose the correct classes for the spring semester to ensure they are on track to graduate,” Wood said.
Students may register for classes in person at the Harper Help Desk on the main campus or at the Shope Building in Robbinsville. Returning students also have the option of registering online via WebAdvisor.
