June 6, 2014 — Tidewater Community College will host an informative and activity-filled open house on its four campuses on Saturday, June 21. All are invited, especially:

  • June high school graduates contemplating next steps in their education.

  • Adults wanting to start a degree, finish a degree, learn a new field or advance in their careers.

  • Active-duty military and veterans looking to leverage their military experience in a pursuit of higher education; spouses and dependents are also encouraged to attend.

The open house will be from 9 a.m. to noon in the student centers on each of TCC’s campuses in Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth and Virginia Beach.

Orientation is one of the topics covered at the TCC open house.

Students will be able to apply to TCC; learn about financial aid, grants and scholarships; tour the campuses; explore academic programs; and learn about student life.

Those who apply now and complete the federal financial aid application can have their financial aid eligibility determined by the time fall classes begin on Aug. 25.

“We are dedicated to serving all sorts of students, whether they’re coming straight out of high school or are returning to the classroom as adults,” said Charles Lepper, vice president for student affairs. “No matter where you are on your educational journey, TCC is the fastest, most flexible and most affordable path you can take.”

TCC has transfer agreements with many colleges, public and private, that allow a student to complete the first two years of a bachelor’s degree and then finish at a four-year school. In addition, programs prepare students for in-demand careers in health care, information systems, the maritime industries and many other fields.
