Current Student Registration


Pre-Registration Checklist:

  • Any required information updates or documentation requirements have been provided to the Office of the Registrar.
  • Financial Aid is completed and updated if necessary.
  • Tuition for the current/previous semester is paid in full.
  • Housing Application has been made.
  • No student account holds are present on your student portal (see resources below for dealing with holds).


Online Registration

After your initial semester with TVCC, you may qualify for self-registration online through your My Cardinal Connect student portal. If you choose to complete self-registration, you can use the link for instructions on how to do so provided below in the Current Student Resources. Not all students are elibile to complete self-registration. Some reasons a student may not be eligibile could include:

  • No TSI completion (college readiness proof)
  • Program of Study is a Certificate course
  • Overdue Balance
  • Academic Probation/Suspension (GPA below 2.0)
  • Expired Documentation
  • Hitting a 30 hour marker (30-Hour Account Hold)


If you are not eligible to register online (for reasons other than overdue balance), you can still meet with an Academic Advisor to register for classes at an Advisement Center on any of our three main campuses.  Students with a past due balance must contact the Business Office to settle the overdue amount before any further registration.  Students on academic probation can register with the guidance of an advisor, but students on an academic suspension should contact the Academic Review Board for an appointment to discuss further action and registration.

TVCC understands that many of our students live remotely, or may have work or other obligations that prevent them from being registered on campus during business hours.  The Advisement Centers offer phone, email, and Virtual Advising.
