Three reasons anyone should attend TCC is because of the tuition, student debt percentage and opportunities. Tidewater Community College's in state tuition is only about $3,200 per semester for full time students taking 18 credits, and you only need 12 to be consider full time. So just image if you were only taking 3-4 classes on 12 credits. You'd pay a thousand dollars less! Tidewater Community College is very inexpensive. In fact TCC is so affordable that 3 of 5 students graduate debt free! Which is my favorite financial part about TCC. Also, TCC offers many internships to students from all career backgrounds (excluding performing arts - but no worries, TCC is surrounded by Union performing arts establishments in Norfolk and Virginia Beach, so auditions are always being posted). It's great going to a college that is surrounded by the business you are going to school for. It's so motivating and it just makes the college experience one worth working that much harder for!
