Tarrant County College fall 2013 - page 8

Welcome! I thought it was time to start a new thread for TCC fall 2013 applicants and future hopefuls. I've followed the past 2 threads for TCC and there are at least a handful of us finishing up pre-requisites this summer and... Read More

    I am about to start my Science classes. I work full time and have a teenager at home. I think taking one science class at a time is the right decision...suggestions?

    Also....the TCC website says they only use your science grades and the HESI to get your GPA that is used for admission...and that you have to get at least a C in allother pre req courses. I have also heard from people that they use your overall GPA + HESI for admission....anyone know which is correct? I have a few B's in pre req classes...not sure if I need to retake them.

    Working full time, I would not suggest doubling up on sciences unless you are strong in that area. I tripled up on sciences this semester and am maintaining an A in all three; however, I do not work and two are retakes to get them within 5 years. I have one kid involved in extra curricular activities and I have started to get a little stressed at times. One week I had 5 tests and didn't do as well as I had hoped on all of them. In two weeks, I will have 4 tests, but I just keep telling myself it is almost over.

    Happy finals week everybody! I am officially done with all of my prereqs and can happily say I'll be applying with a 4.0 science GPA. Now all that's left is the HESI, application and the wait.

    Good luck to everyone this week!

    I just finished my last final today and will be applying with a 4.0 science GPA and a 92.5% HESI score.

    Congrats to you both! @Ktm89 & futureexpectations.
    I will also be applying with a 4.0 and a 94 on my Hesi. Can't wait to start this journey

    I still need to take my HESI. Did you both take it at TCC? I'm hoping to take it at TCC and somewhere else just so I have the choice between the better of the two scores

    I took it at TCC last semester. I also posted some study tips on a previous page.

    Question...I noticed that on the information for TCC's partnership with Tarleton that Statistics is a requirement, and in parenthesis it has (College Algebra prereq) beside it. TCC only requires Intermediate Algebra to register for Statistics. Should we also take College Algebra?
    I'm curious because it is not listed seperatly as a prereq, it's only in parenthesis.
    Also, does anyone know if TCC's HECO will cover the nutrition requirement?

    I'm not sure whether or not you'll need algebra as well as statistics. They aren't very clear on that. As far as nutrition goes, I would think it would transfer. At least I'm hoping it will since that's the same class I have!

    I noticed that notation too. I talked to a TCC advisor at NW campus about math requirement this past semester. Stats ranks lower in math at TCC than College Algebra does. Successful completion of Stats will not get you into College Algebra, only your Accuplacer score or completion of Math 0350 can. I would think they would put College Algebra on the list if it is also required. (UTA requires both and they are listed separately)

    When I was trying to build my spring class list, I came across a webite that showed equivalent classes. http://www.tccns.org/default.aspx You might find your answer there about the Nutrition class.

    Thank you for the link! I was unable to find a match to Tarleton's Nutrition course. The closest course I did find for TCC was FDNS-1345. I did not know TCC offered a Nutrition course other than HECO1322, which seems to be a prereq for the FDNS course. I went ahead and emailed someone in the nursing department to see if they can offer any insight.

    the nutrition equivalent is HECO 1322 at TCC
