Want to register for classes as an Early Admission student? This checklist will help guide you through the process.
Step 1: Advising
See your high school counselor to pick up your sealed transcript/test scores (unless they are already on file with TC from dual credit). Meet with a TC Advisor for guidance in picking the best course options.
Step 2: Dual Credit Application
New students must complete a Dual Credit Application at https://www.texarkanacollege.edu/enrollment-services/dual-credit/. Applications must be done at least 48 hours in advance of registering. Current or previous dual credit students do not need to do this.
Step 3: Meningitis Immunization Records
All Texarkana College students are required to have a current meningitis vaccination or file an exemption. Vaccinations are good for 5 years.
Step 4: Texas Success Initiative
Early Admission students must be assessed in TSIA2 unless they have prior Dual Credit or Early Admission coursework meeting the course restriction. The test students will take is dependent on the course restriction they are registering for. Students can be exempt through ACT with a 23 composite and 19 on Math and English or through SAT with a score of 480 on Reading and Writing and/or 530 on Math. Students can take the TSIA2 assessment at TC’s Testing Center. EOC’s cannot be used for Early Admission. Previous dual credit coursework with same restrictions met with EOC’s can.
Please see TSI Testing Center Info for Parents.
Step 5: Visit TC’s Office of Enrollment Services to complete a registration form – parent signature required if under 18 – and register for classes!
Make sure you bring the following items if we do not already have them on file:
- Sealed transcript (new students only)
- Test scores (ACT or SAT will be on your ISD transcript)
- Proof of Meningitis (if taking classes on TC campus)
