Admissions Policies

High School/ Concurrent Enrollment Students

High School/concurrent students need to meet with their school counselor or Pathways Coordinator to determine eligibility for TCR programs. Home school students need to meet with the TCR Career Advisor/ Student Advocate to discuss program requirements and rigor. The student and parent(s) then meet with the Registrar and/or for final approval. Students who are interested in attending our institution must be on track to graduate from their high school, be at least 16 years of age (or have permission from the TCR Registrar), and have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher for most programs. Some programs have higher GPA requirements. Students must also have permission from their counselor and parents to attend TCR.

Post Secondary Students

Our open-door admission policy allows anyone 17 years or older, who have completed high school or achieved an equivalent measure (i.e., GED), and who has an occupational objective, to be considered for entrance into a postsecondary career and technical programs.

We admit qualified students on a “First Come, First Served” basis, who have completed all necessary admissions requirements. When programs are filled, additional applicants are placed on an alternative wait list. Students must meet all admissions requirements to be placed on this list. Please see your program page on the school website for more information.

Late enrollments may be accepted (with Program Coordinator and TCR Administration approval) on a case-by-case basis.

All financial obligations to TCR from previous terms must be paid in full prior to program continuance or re-enrollment.

We accept high school students in some of our post-secondary career and technical programs.

All incoming students may be subject to assessment testing to determine their skill level. There is a fee for those tests.
