International Student Services and Programs

P: 253.566.5190

Tacoma Community College provides a quality learning environment in which international students can pursue their educational objectives. The college is committed to international education as a means to promote cultural, political, and social awareness and understanding.

Through the college’s International Student Services and Programs office, students receive support in a variety of areas including detailed assistance in admissions and registration, academic advising, and orientation to the campus and community. In addition, the office provides information on United States Citizenship and Immigration Services regulations.

Services for international students also include housing and activities. Students who request help with accommodations are matched with local families for home-stays or referred to nearby apartments. TCC's International Student Organization (ISO), a large and active student club, plans numerous events of special interest to international students.

TCC offers direct transfer agreements for international students transferring to the University of Washington Tacoma, Saint Martin’s University in engineering, Pacific Lutheran University, Washington State University, Brandman University, Central Washington University, Concordia University, Portland State University, Indiana University South Bend, and more.
