We value your connections and relationships with students and hope you’ll help us make strong initial connections with students, too. Particularly underrepresented and first generation students benefit from a smooth transition to another caring individual at college—let us be that person in the lives of the students support!

You can do that by referring students to the various activities we offer to give students the tools they need to successfully consider options, apply to TCC, improve placement scores if needed, learn about ways2pay4college, and much, much more!

Click on the links below or ask us to find the best option for the student you’re working with:

  • Admission Info Sessions
    1.5-hour sessions hosted by Outreach intended to jump start a student’s progress through the enrollment steps to becoming a student at TCC. Highly recommended and very popular for students who need guidance on next steps.
  • ACCUPLACER Prep Workshops
    1.5-hour sessions taught by TCC faculty on the Tacoma campus which help students prepare for or improve their scores on the ACCUPLACER placement test (offered in both Math and English). Very popular and provides students with much-needed brush up on core skills.
  • Ways2Pay4College
    Popular and comprehensive workshops for students, parents and counselors (earn clock hours!) to learn about scholarship options, how to navigate the financial aid process, receive FAFSA help, free tax preparation help for low income families, and other options for paying for college.

  • TCC Career Fair
    A fun hands-on day for students to discover career training program options at TCC. Plan to bring a group of high school students for a full 5 hours of exploring campus, participating in the highly interactive and popular mini-health fair, learning what it takes to study in certain careers at the career fair, and attending workshops on topics including ACCUPLACER Prep, How to Transfer to a 4-year, Hot Careers, and more!
