Orientation Centers

Visit an Orientation Center on any campus after your application has been processed. You do not need to wait until you are accepted to TTC and you do not need to have your financial aid completed before going to orientation. As long as your major is recorded in the student database system (including undecided and nondegree students) and you have qualifying test scores or your test requirements have been waived, you can walk into any Orientation Center - no appointment is necessary.


You can change your major and be assigned a new academic advisor in an Orientation Center. If you have already been through orientation, you can call an Orientation Center or email an Orientation Leader to learn who your new academic advisor will be. You are able to see your current advisor's name, phone number, and email address on the "My Profile" screen in TTC Express if you have been to Orientation.


You are a nondegree student if you want to enroll in credit courses but do not seek to earn a TTC degree, diploma or certificate. To be admitted as a nondegree student, you must be at least 18 years old or have a GED or high school diploma, and you must provide evidence of minimum reading skills* through one of the following tests which are valid for five years from the date of testing: SAT Critical Reading score of 480, ACT English score of 19, COMPASS Reading score of 36, ASSET Reading score of 31, a level 4 score on the WorkKeys Reading for Information subtest, a grade report showing successful completion of college-level coursework, or an approved transient/cross-registration form/letter from another college. You may be asked to provide additional test scores or transfer credit at registration, depending on the prerequisites of the courses you select. For admission purposes, unofficial documents are acceptable. Nondegree students are not eligible for financial aid, veterans’ benefits or lottery tuition assistance.

The Orientation Centers are the non-degree student's resource for a quick orientation and registration. This link will provide nondegree students more information on services provided to them.


The Orientation Centers are an information resource for students. If you don't know where to go or who to see about anything related to the college, you can visit an Orientation Center for answers. Contact an Orientation Leader for more information.
