“As the pace of our society continues to quicken, TCC Connect Campus is helping open doors to better career options afforded by higher education in a more accessible way,” said TCC Chancellor Eugene Giovannini, Ed.D. “The opening of this new facility makes it possible for us to better meet the needs of our community.”
TCC began offering courses online in 1989. Currently, TCC Connect Campus offers 18
fully online programs and confers five associate degrees and 13 certificate programs online. TCC Connect provides an eLearning course inventory of more than 350 courses and more than 1,100 classes. For the first time, TCC Connect offered classes during Maymester – 20 courses from May 12 to May 26.
