  • Degree: Criminal Justice
"TCC is an awesome school. I have enjoyed all of my teachers. I used my GI bill but even if I didnt the tuition is very manageable, my wife is going to be taking classes here next year and we will be paying for it. Criminal justice is pretty easy here it is a lot of common sense based. If you pay attention and do your work, then you will pass. I did online classes and some in person and both went smoothly in my 2 years I have been here. Never had problems with paperwork or my gi bill going through. Definetly recommend this school."

"The hvac program is a JOKE! No one will hire you after graduation. I went on an interview and the interviewer informed me ( after I told him I was a TC graduate) that they did not hire TC graduates. I asked Why? His response was " Because they come in here waving their diplomas and certificates, and they DONT KNOW ANYTHING, AND CANT DO ANYTHING!" And this must be true, because NO-ONE seems to want to hire me or ANY of the guys I graduated with! I have compared notes, and NONE of my classmates have been hired! Don't waste your time or your life gong into this program!"

  • Degree: EMT
"It is true that from TCC you can go anywhere. The only problem you tend to run into is with some of the instructor's. I am currently enrolled in the EMT program at TCC and they can sometimes be inconsistent with their instructions and ways they want things done. One proctor will tell you one thing and then another something completely different. It can be very frustrating when you get to the end of the semester and still are somewhat lost on what to do. But all in all 85% of the instructor's that I have encountered at tcc are amazing and they love to teach and give their students 110%."
