Tidewater Community College is an amazing higher education facility. I began studying here straight out of high school because I was not ready to commit to a 4 year university at that time. The college offers four convenient locations across Hampton Roads. I majored in Social Sciences and received my Associate's of Science in May 2017. The professors at this institution were absolutely amazing. It was apparent that they truly loved teaching. They were among the most helpful and informational professors that I had ever met. The professors at TCC were always very understanding and flexible about their students personal lives, considering the amount of non-traditional students there. The scheduling process was always extremely easy and made the whole process a breeze. Not only is tuition financially affordable, they also offer a variety of free resources to assist you in your studies. I truly loved attending TCC and even though I am now at a university, I miss it everyday!

Overall TCC is a wonderful place to attend, the staff and administrators are always kind and helpful. The tuition is low, they offer many majors, certifications and transfer & degree programs. The professors are informant helpful and care about your education. They offer many on campus resources, like counseling, tutors, study areas, and more. The campus is small and close knit. It's a great school to start off at, from TCC you can really go anywhere!
Everyone in the office was extremely helpful with the application and enrollment process . When i arrived on campus the advisors were helpful and it when i got lost everyone was very friendly about giving me directions and pointing the way! The only thing i did not like is the Norfolk campus does not have free parking like the Virginia Beach campus does. During the school season you can purchase a parking pass or park in the mall parking garage for cheap. Everywhere else is around 1.50/hr . Other than that it’s a very nice school. They help a lot with planning out Classes that will benefit whatever major your chose to pursue.
