Parent Information

Welcome Parents. You are an important part of your child’s college journey, and we invite you to join TSC’s President, faculty, and staff to learn about what they (and you) can expect at the New Parent Welcome/Convocation. The session will be held on Zoom Tuesday, August 13, 2024, from 6–7 p.m.

To sign up for the New Parent Welcome/Convocation Session, please Register Here.

As the parent/legal guardian of an incoming TSC student, here's what you need to know. 

Student Confidentiality

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their educational records. Understand your students' privacy rights.

Academic Deadlines

Along with your student, you can make note of important dates and deadlines to make sure they are met each semester. It is especially important to stay ahead of the fee payment deadlines to avoid your student from being dropped from classes.

Payment Options

In addition to paying online, TSC accepts payments that are either dropped off physically or mailed to the Cashier's Office. Learn about our convenient payment options.

Financial Aid

If your student is applying for financial aid, they need to check their status. The FAFSA is just the beginning of the process and all financial aid students need to ensure their financial aid file is completed at least two weeks prior to the fee payment date. If students are missing documents in their Admission’s file (residency, transcripts etc.), financial aid cannot be processed.

If your student registers after the Tuition Payment date, tuition and fees are due on the day of registration, which means their financial aid file must be completed and awarded or they will need to be prepared to pay out of pocket.
