Tidewater Community College Reviews
At TCC I was able to enroll with a GED and placement testing. I cannot stress enough how amazing an opportunity it was, having been a high school dropout, to be given the chance to start my life over and get a college education. TCC is affordable and financial aid is available without hassle. Most of the courses provided are challenging and have impeccable teachers who care. TCC has incredible flexibility, which is especially useful for those who are adults, such as myself that have other things to tend to in life. I just graduated in December with my associates and I am now transferring to a 4-year university all because of this school and I am extremely grateful and proud to have been able to attend here. From here you REALLY can go anywhere, thank you, TCC!
Great school for vocational training and allied health professions! Professors are professional, always available for help. School sets up students to be successful with daycare options, a work study program, and new student orientation to outline expectations. Attendance is taken in all classes to require students’ commitment.
It is easy to Navigate, has great professors, and up-to-date equipment for learning! Tidewater Community College (Chesapeake campus) was recently re-done and it is beautiful! We have three main buildings for academics and a newly build student center. The student center has a cafe, recreation room, gym etc. Even though it's a community college it definitely has a cozy-campus feel.
