TCC TO UPGRADE STUDENT INFORMATION SYSTEM
Offline Feb. 27 - March 7, but students can conduct business
ROADS, Va. – (Feb. 16, 2005) – As part of a statewide
initiative to upgrade and enhance the computerized student information
system that serves Virginia community colleges, Tidewater Community
College will take its registration, transcript and other student
web-based and Touchtone services offline from 6 p.m. on Feb. 27
through March 7.
During the system’s downtime for conversion, TCC will assist
students with business needs at all four campuses, including registration
for the second 8-week session that begins March 14, tuition payment
by cash, check or money order, and admissions activities.
TCC’s Touchtone Interactive Voice Response and web-based
access to the student information system will be available when
the system goes live again on March 8.
For assistance or more information, call TCC’s Information
Center at 822-1122.
