TSC prepares students for Summer and Fall Registration

TSC prepares students for Summer/Fall Registration.

“We’re moving ahead with registration anticipating this COVID-19 crisis will be behind us soon,†said Vasquez. “Classes fill up fast, so locking in your schedule early gives you time to work around job and/or family obligations. Plus you get to avoid long lines and lengthy wait times.â€

“Advisors are always available to assist students,†she added. “They provide knowledge, guidance and the support necessary to empower students to reach their educational goals.â€

Registration for TSC’s Summer and Fall 2020 semesters is underway.

Summer I and III Semesters begin June 1 and Summer II starts July 7. The Fall Semester begins Aug. 24.
