Westshore Campus is committed to meeting the educational needs of the residents of the Westshore communities. The campus provides College Credit Plus courses for high school students, certificates, two-year degrees and transfer opportunities for students in STEM, health careers, business and liberal arts. Students save thousands of dollars by completing the first two years of college at Tri-C because the tuition is about a third of the cost of tuition at a four-year institution. Community colleges are a great option for students with families, full-time jobs and outside responsibilities – saving time and money as you continue your educational journey. In the past five years, 35,000 students have transferred from Tri-C to four-year universities. The Westshore Campus has a variety of courses for both transfer as well as to earn a degree or certificate. Courses are offered in nursing, business, IT, science, pre-engineering, emergency medical technology, English as a Second Language, and many more.
