How do I apply for admission to TSC?

In order to attend our college all new, incoming students must complete the following steps: 

Step 1. Apply for Admission

  • Apply for admission using our online application:

Keep this page for your records as you will need this information to log in to TSC Workday Student and to access your TSC Outlook email.
  • Once you gain access to Workday, you will need to check your account for holds or actions items in order to complete your admission file.  
  • Florida Residency for tuition purposes.  Submit copies of the documents you need to prove that you or your parent/legal guardian are Florida residents (e.g., driver license, vehicle registration, voter’s registration card) that reflect an issue date of at least 12 months prior to the first day of class for the semester you plan to attend.
