First College Program
The First College Program is a partnership between Portsmouth Public Schools and Tidewater Community College (TCC). The Program allows high school seniors who have taken dual enrollment classes and passed them with a grade of "C" or better, and have completed all requirements for graduation, to enroll as fulltime college students at TCC during the second semester. These credit hours are fully transferable to any state college or university. The class of 2006 were the first participants of the First College Program. Interested students or parents should contact their students' guidance counselors.
