Steps to Enroll: New Degree-Seeking Students

These Steps to Enroll for New Degree-Seeking Students were developed to support your success at TMCC. If you are seeking a degree and have never been to college, including TMCC, you must complete these steps before you can register for classes.

  1. Apply for Admission
    Complete a TMCC Application for Admission and view important dates and deadlines. If you have questions, contact the Admissions and Records office.
  2. Complete New Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration (SOAR)
    SOAR covers information and resources you need to start your education at TMCC on the track to success, prepare a first semester class schedule and register.
  3. Register and Pay for Classes
    Class registration and payment are completed through MyTMCC using your TMCC username and password. If you need assistance with your username or password and you know your NSHE Student ID number, visit the online self-service tools. If you do not know your NSHE Student ID number or would like additional registration assistance, call New Student Services at 775-673-7111.

Recommended Steps for Success

  1. Apply for Financial Aid
    Get help with your college expenses by completing the online FAFSA by these priority deadlines: July 1 for Fall, December 1 for Spring, April 1 for Summer. If you have any questions or need assistance, contact the Financial Aid Office. Please note in order to complete the FAFSA you must be a citizen, permanent resident or other eligible non-citizen of the U.S. as documented by Citizenship and Immigration Services.
  2. Take a Placement Test (if needed)
    English placement and math placement at TMCC has changed, and you may be able to place into the course you need for your degree using your recent high school transcript or alternate pathways, if you graduated within two years prior to the term you are applying. If you require a placement test, check out our Testing Services available, and schedule an appointment online.
