Publication Information and Nondiscrimination Policies


Tidewater Community College provides its website, catalog, handbooks, and any other printed materials or electronic media for your general guidance. The college does not guarantee that the information contained within them, including, but not limited to, the contents of any page that resides under the DNS registrations of tcc.edu is up-to-date, complete and accurate, and individuals assume any risks associated with relying upon such information without checking other credible sources, such as a student’s academic advisor. In addition, a student’s or prospective student’s reliance upon information contained within these sources, or individual program catalogs or handbooks, when making academic decisions does not constitute, and should not be construed as, a contract with the college. Further, the college reserves the right to make changes to any provision or requirement within these sources, as well as changes to any curriculum or program, whether during a student’s enrollment or otherwise. Links or references to other materials and websites provided in the above-referenced sources are also for information purposes only and do not constitute the college’s endorsement of products or services reference.

TCC encourages and supports a learning environment where free expression of views and speech, which are essential components of academic freedom, is supported. In this learning environment students may encounter content (language, videos, pictures, and other teaching resources) that offers differing points of view or challenges their beliefs and values. The college encourages students to make informed decisions when selecting courses. Students with questions may contact the faculty member teaching the course.

In accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Board policy, the College does not discriminate on the basis of disability. Please contact the Office of Educational Accessibility at 757-822-7752 regarding equal access. Tidewater Community College is committed to equal access to its programs and services governed by this policy of non-discrimination. These programs and services include, but are not limited to, all employees, student governments, curricula and other programs sponsored by the college.

Tidewater Community College does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity, marital status, pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions including lactation, age (except when age is a bona fide occupational qualification), status as a veteran, national origin, or other non-merit factors in its programs or activities. Inquiries related to the college’s nondiscrimination policies may be directed to the Associate Vice President of Human Resources, Post Office Box 9000, Norfolk, VA 23509-9000, 757-822-1711.

In accordance with ED 34 C.F.R 668.71-668.75 and ED 34 C.F.R 668.14 and per the Department of Defense Memorandum for Understanding, paragraph 3.j.(2), Tidewater Community College will refrain from providing any commission, bonus, or other incentive payment based directly or indirectly on securing enrollments or federal financial aid (including Tuition Assistance funds) to any persons or entities engaged in any student, recruiting, admissions activities, or making decisions regarding the award of student financial assistance through the elimination of unfair, deceptive, and abusive marketing aimed at service members.
