Important Considerations for Prospective Athletes:

  • Complete your admissions process as early as you are able.  It is free to apply to TVCC, so even if your plans to attend change, being prepared to attend TVCC as early as you can will best protect any eligibility status.
  • If you are a scholarship recipient, that scholarship may have a registration deadline to be eligible to receive those funds.  This deadline is typically much sooner than the regular registration deadline, so once you are good with admissions, get registered for classes as soon as you can.
  • Never assume that an athletic scholarship has covered every single expense.  Even "full-ride" scholarships may have limits to what types of tuition and fees they may cover.  It is each student's responsibility to ensure your whole statement has been paid, or payment plan set up, by the tuition deadline.
  • As part of a team, you may have a specific advisor that you are required to work with each semester.  This may mean that you and the rest of the team are all attempting to register simultaneously; reach out to your advisor early and communicate often to ensure that you get registered properly.
  • If you find that your plans change suddenly, be sure you visit with both your coach AND your advisor.  It is the responsibility of the student to withdraw from classes if you are leaving or will not be attending.
