State of Florida Employee

Through TCC's State Employee Tuition Waiver Program, state employees are eligible to take up to six in state credit hours per term on a space available basis during the specified registration window. TCC is proud to offer state employees this opportunity to enhance their skills and job competencies for a better future.


Students who are transferring from another institution such as a Florida private or public community college, a state or private university, or an out-of state college or university are considered transfer students.


A transient student (aka "guest student") is a student who is enrolled at one University, but taking classes at another that will count toward their degree at their home University. Generally, this happens when students don't live near their home University over the summer but want to take a class or two to speed up the obtainment of their degree, or if for some reason they can't take a class at their home University that they need to graduate.


Apply for your VA benefits to get the most out of them.
