*We allow for completion of 90 college-level credits in lieu of an Associate Degree because we realize that students may have taken a variety of college level courses, but that those courses may not fit the requirements of any specific Associate Degree.

**Students who do not meet the GPA requirement(s) may petition to have their individual circumstances reviewed with submission of letter of explanation.

***Students with any incidence of academic dishonesty may submit a petition to have their individual circumstances reviewed with submission of a letter of explanation.

****We offer the MOS Certification exam on the TCC campus. You can sign up here for MOS Certification Testing.

Your application is strengthened if you have taken an introductory business class (BUS& 101 recommended) and an introductory accounting class, ACCT 101 or ACCT& 201.
