Students may qualify for college-level classes (those numbered 101 and higher) through placement tests or completion of college preparation courses. Although pre-program, developmental courses (those numbered 100 and lower) do not fulfill General Education or program requirements, they are necessary to prepare students to successfully complete their General Education and program courses.
For information, please refer to the current College Catalog.
As a TOCC student, it is your responsibility to take an active role in the development of your educational and career goals and make sure you are taking the appropriate courses to achieve your goals. To assist you in this endeavor, we have an Academic Advisor to assist students with important decision-making opportunities. Before registering for classes and throughout each semester, new students should meet with the Academic Advisor.
Meanwhile, a Counselor and a Retention Coordinator are available to assist students in self-awareness, development, and achievement of academic, career and personal goals. These individuals can help students develop effective time-management and study skills, and help explain the curriculum offerings.
