Step 1: Acquire a High School Admission Application

You can download an enrollment application here, or get one from TMCC High School by calling TMCC High School at 775-674-7660 to have one mailed, or by picking one up at the TMCC High School office.

Step 2: Send/Submit the Completed Application

The completed application can be mailed or brought to the TMCC High School office. The completed application must have all parent/student signatures, unofficial transcript, attendance record for the current school year, any testing you may have, and teacher/counselor recommendations. The teacher/counselor recommendations can be mailed via inter-school mail by the teacher/counselor. The process to accept or deny the application can take up to two weeks. The more complete the information we have, the less time it takes to process an application.

Step 3: Processing Your Application

When we process your application and find that you are borderline or do not meet the criteria for acceptance, we will call or email you. Based on your application, we may require you to do certain things in the areas of academics, attendance, and/or discipline to enhance your chances of meeting our entrance criteria and aid in your success, or we may deny your application. If we accept you, it will be contingent upon your taking the Accuplacer and scoring at a minimum level of English 98 and Math 95.

Step 4: Apply for Admission to TMCC

Complete a TMCC Application for Admission and view important dates and deadlines. If you have questions, contact the Admissions and Records office. Once the college has processed your application you will receive instructions from them on taking the Accuplacer. Do not follow any other college steps for enrollment, instead bring your Accuplacer report to the TMCC High School office.

Step 5: Admission Acceptance

If you meet or exceed the minimum levels of English and math we will process your application and accept you. We will send out via email orientation/registration information. The orientation/registration information will contain the dates/time/place for orientation and registration as well as registration instructions.

Step 6: Orientation

Orientation is held separately from registration and is mandatory for student and parent. You will not be allowed to register if you have not attended orientation.
