*An official transcript must be printed within the last year and sent directly from the institution in a sealed envelope and is designated "official" in writing or by virtue of transcript format. Official transcripts can be hand delivered to any Enrollment Center office as long as the transcript is in a sealed envelope. Faxed transcripts are not accepted.
As soon as you apply to Tri-C, the College will generate your my Tri-C space account. Here, you will obtain important information regarding registration, financial aid and course planning. Within my Tri-C space, you will also have an email account. Remember to check your email regularly for important updates. Login to my Tri-C space.
If you have not completed college-level courses equivalent to Tri-C’s college-level math and English, you will need to complete Tri-C’s placement test(s) in these areas.
You will be waived from Test Prep and placement testing if you have:
(1) Earned qualifying ACT or SAT scores in the last two years* (see chart below) and/or
(2) Completed college-level coursework in math and English.**
* If you have one qualifying score from ACT/SAT, you must complete Test
Prep and placement testing at Tri-C in the subject area that you did not receive a qualifying score.
** If you have one qualifying math or English course earned at the college level, you must complete Test Prep and placement testing in the subject area that you did not receive college credit.
For your convenience, you can also make an appointment online. Look at your my Tri-C space account under the Student tab and click the Counseling button.
You can register for classes on the Registration Tab of my Tri-C space or in person at the Enrollment Center.
Your registration is not complete until you pay your tuition and fees. There is a payment deadline for each term. Pay your bill or make other arrangements with the Enrollment Center by the payment deadline.
You will need your My Tri-C identification card to conduct business on any Tri-C campus. You can get your picture taken and haven your card printed at the Enrollment Center after you have registered for courses.
Buy your books at the campus bookstore or online (see your printed class schedule) before the start of classes. The bookstore offers rentals, e-books, used books and new books. Visit the Tri-C bookstore.
