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!

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!
TCC is a great school, they are very helpful. There is no need to schedule appointments with counselors because they are always available at a walk in basis. The school also caters to the military with its own veterans center with knowledgeable staff standing by to help with the ins and outs of military tuition assistance. There are only two things that I can complain about is some of the requirements seem pointless like the college success class, especially as a requirement for transfer students. The second thing is that some of the professors are candid about their indifference to teaching. Often showing up late, cancelling class or ending class an hour early because they didn't feel like talking anymore.
