The primary responsibility of the Advising and Career Center is to guide students in making wise selections of course offerings with careful attention to institutional policies and degree requirements. Career counseling and planning is available to all students who are unsure of their designated career paths and want to ensure that they succeed in their chosen Program of Study.
In addition, effective advising will also assist students in identifying available internal and external resources that will have a positive impact on their TCCC first year experience. TCCC recognizes each student as an individual who will have individual needs including Veteran students. The one-on-one sessions ensures students leave confident and prepared for their first year. Veterans are referred to Tri-County CC's Certifying Official for more information on Veteran's Benefits.
