Toni - 08/04/2022

I absolutely love this college. Before I became a freshman in college, I was struggling to choose a college to go to. My older sister was already attending the Southeast Campus, and I just decided to follow in her footsteps and attend the same place. I was initially going for my basics, but when I got involved in a theater production, I decided to study theater once I transfer to a university. Additionally, every facility that you want to use is free, and you don't have to pay to use the gym or for any services that you will need. Not to mention, it is very easy to navigate through the campus, every staff member that I have met are welcoming and are willing to help in any way, and the students are extremely friendly. I love attending this place, and it's going to be bittersweet when I transfer.

Laura - 06/14/2022

If you are a parent, DO NOT ATTEND. They are not kind, they are not understanding. They do not care about your needs and the professors are extremely rude to parents. I complained about discrimination and they changed the rule to fit their needs. The financial aid workers will NOT help you; it took me until the 3rd to last week of the semester just to find out why they hadn't given me my financial aid, and it was an error on their end. Also, the professors would rather die than respond to emails or write up a syllabus.

Marissa - 04/29/2022

Overall there are alot of teachers and staff that care about their students and love to teach. I've had a very pleasant experience, even in classes I've done badly in. I've always felt valued as a student and teachers always try to point me to resources that'll help me to improve.

Ruby - 12/15/2021

I really like this college! they have very helpful professors who are really here to teach! and not just here to get the money. So far every professor that I have had are very kind and also very helpful. I currently am on the southeast campus, in the future, I would like to attend their other campus in Hurst, Texas so that I can be in their Dental hygiene program which I am very much looking forward to.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    When I entered highschool, I heard all of the warnings of how difficult it would be ringing in my head over and over. However, high school was not very difficult to me; I even graduated Cum Laude. So naturally, as time to go off to college approached, I took the many warnings of how tough and stressful it would be and let them go in one ear and out the other! Well what I should have done was listen to those warnings! If I was able to go back and talk to Aubrei in highschool and tell myself the things I know now, I would make sure I knew that in college, depend on only YOURSELF!! NOBODY is going to hold your hand. You have to take it upon YOURSELF to get your assignments, know the material, and not to mention supply your own EVERYTHING and ALWAYS have it with you!! Your professors only say things ONCE; get it then or never! Be on time, be respectful, and follow rules. Most importantly I NEEDED to know: Set aside time to acually DO homework and STUDY!! There's NO COPYING!! "PROCRASTINATE" can no longer be my "middle name!!"

TCC is a great school and I have not been upset with any member of their faculty. I do however, wish I would have known more about Financial Aid and Scholarships.

  17. What is your overall opinion of this school?

    Tarrant County College is about as good as any other the two year institutions. The classes and instructors ,like anywhere, some are better than others. With the distance learning classes, You must do a lot of outside research on your own. I have learned quite a lot about the subjects I have taken, but often not with the help of the instructor. The curriculum is good for the basic courses and gets you in the door for a four year university. The financial aid office is not always as helpful as they could be. Research your information with FAFSA and any other scholarship organizations on your own. And it is your responsibility to be sure you have all the required paper work to the correct offices at the school to get things done. Some times you may just need to go by e-mail early to avoid problems. The counselors are required but not always interested in what you want. Be sure to stand up for your desires in your education , they are just filling classes and degree programs.
