Admission Application for International Students

Before filling out this application, please be aware that students who arrive to the U.S. with a Tacoma Community College I-20 will need to study on TCC’s campus for at least one quarter. If a student chooses to transfer out before completing their first quarter, their TCC I-20 will be cancelled and transferred in terminated status. Therefore, we recommend students do not enter the U.S. with TCC's I-20 unless they intend to enroll and study at Tacoma Community College for their first term.
