Welcome to Truckee Meadows Community College

This is a draft edition of the 2020-2021 catalog. Go to MyTMCC for course descriptions and prerequisites in effect for the Fall registration cycle.

On behalf of the President, faculty and staff, welcome to Truckee Meadows Community College.  Whether you are attending classes at one of our four community locations, on-line, or at your local high school, we believe you will find everything you need for learning and career success here.

Our academic faculty and staff are committed to providing you with high quality learning experiences that are engaging, relevant and that encourage innovative thinking.  The Student Services & Diversity team will help you get involved and build strong personal connections because we want every person to feel valued and supported. And our amazing Student Government Association (SGA) ensures that you have a wide variety of co-curricular opportunities to engage in - each fostering academic growth, leadership development and personal enrichment.  Whatever your interest, there is a way to get involved!

At TMCC, our goal is to engage all of our students through activities, events and experiences that promote a healthy mind, healthy body, and healthy environment .

TMCC is proud of the new Sports & Fitness Center that opened in Spring 2020 at the Dandini campus.  All TMCC students have access to this facility – just provide your enrollment verification and one of our talented staff members will help you get started. And if you love sports, consider getting involved with our Mighty Lizards soccer team. Whether participating as a student athlete or a spectator, you will love attending games on our new field that overlooks the Reno/Sparks area. Vamos Verdes! 

At TMCC, we are proud of our campus environment and we continue to update our physical spaces to help foster a welcoming, inclusive culture.   Each location features modern facilities with collaborative spaces designed to encourage communication, collegiality and creativity. Thanks to a partnership with NV Energy, we are 100% powered by renewable energy in each of our four community locations (Dandini, Meadowood, Edison and Redfield).  To get involved in other environmental initiatives, visit the Sustainability Office in the Diversity and International Student Center (DISCO). While you’re there, hang out with other students, staff and faculty in the lounge, use a private prayer/meditation room or charge your mobile devices.  This is also a great place to engage with our growing number of international students!

We are so excited that you have chosen to be part of the TMCC community. Whether you are attending TMCC to prepare for a job, upskill in your current career, earn a certificate, associate's or bachelor's degree, transfer to a four-year program, or explore a lifelong learning opportunity – TMCC can help you reach your goals!
