Advising at TCC is integrated and student-centered. TCC encourages students to make appropriate choices based on their abilities, interests and values and supports them in achieving their personal, academic, and career goals.
Academic advisors assist new students with the planning and completion of class schedules consistent with their educational goals. Students are encouraged to meet with their academic advisors each quarter to track their educational progress. Once students have identified educational goals, developed plans for achieving their goals, and demonstrated progress, they are assigned faculty advisors.
The Advising Center in Bldg. 7 coordinates campus-wide advising services, provides referral services, and assigns faculty advisors to students. Academic advisors are available by appointment or on a drop-in basis. The Center also provides information on transfer requirements for students planning to pursue degrees at four-year colleges and universities. Gig Harbor students may also call the Gig Harbor Campus at 253.460.2424 for advising information.
