Summer/Fall Registration Underway at TSC


Summer/Fall Registration Underway at TSC

TSC RegistrationTexas Southmost College’s registration is currently underway for both the summer and fall 2020 semesters. TSC Executive Director of Academic and Student Services Vanessa Vasquez said it’s important for students to keep in mind the benefits of registering early.

“We’re moving ahead with registration anticipating this COVID-19 crisis will be behind us soon,” said Vasquez. “Classes fill up fast, so locking in your schedule early gives you time to work around job and/or family obligations. Plus you get to avoid long lines and lengthy wait times.

“Advisors are always available to assist students,” she added. “They provide knowledge, guidance and the support necessary to empower students to reach their educational goals.”

Summer I and III semesters begin June 1, Summer II starts July 7 and the Fall semester begins Aug. 24.
