Update: TMCC would like to extend a welcoming hand to students displaced by the recent closing of ITT Technical Institute campuses nationwide. Faculty and advisors at TMCC are ready to assist students in their transition to one of the College’s many certificate or applied degree programs. There are numerous late-starting and online courses from which to choose, listed in the table below.

For more information about applying to TMCC and transitioning to one of the wide-ranging and comprehensive programs and transferability of your coursework, please contact Admissions and Records at 775-673-7042. To schedule a time with one of our academic advisors, please call 775-673-7062, or for financial aid information call 775-673-7072.

Late start classes for credit and transfer are now open for enrollment and can help a student get that one extra course needed. Sections begin in September and October, and students can register at MyTMCC.

There are conveniently scheduled classes and evening or once-a-week sections offered, as well. Web sections can fit tight schedules of students that have other classes or work responsibilities. Many general education classes are also now offered at Meadowood Center, served by more than 450 weekly bus routes.
