Tompkins Cortland Community College

Success & Advising

Your Success is Our Mission

Student Success

The Office of Student Success and Advisement Services supports students throughout their educational experience at Tompkins Cortland.

During START (Student Testing, Advising, Registration, and Transition), students are introduced to a variety of campus resources and begin to learn about academic expectations. Placement Testing is a part of START for most incoming students. New Student Orientation provides another opportunity for students to learn about campus culture and expectations.

For continuing students, our office assists with advisement of most part-time students, and also works with students who fall below the College’s academic standards. We also offer a variety of advising resources to help with your academic planning.
