When you enroll in TCCC courses, you will be assigned a faculty advisor. No student will be allowed to register without an advisor’s signature. Usually this advisor will be your subject area instructor. Your advisor will:

  • Provide general information on TCCC’s policies, procedures, services, and programs.
  • Provide specific information regarding your program/major.
  • Assist in selecting goals, courses, and opportunities that appeal to your interest and match your abilities.
  • Assist in exploring possible outcomes of your choices and/or direction.
  • Plan your class schedules and register you for those classes.
  • Answer your questions and address your concerns.
  • Monitor your academic progress.
  • Offer recommendations and support.

All full-time faculty members are on campus 30 hours per week and have five office hours scheduled each week to assist students and advisees. Schedules are posted at each faculty office and are also available from Student Services. Part-time faculty will make themselves available to assist students on a weekly basis either prior to class, after class, by appointment, or at a time posted on their syllabus.
