Current Students
Not sure what to take next? See Recommended Class schedules for CNST Students or view general TSTC course listings.
  If you need help reviewing your degree plan (AAS, CERT) or creating a schedule that works for you, see any CNST Faculty for assistance.

It is important to take courses within your degree plan to ensure you graduate on time, and that they will be covered under financial aid, if you are eligible and receive Financial Aid. Note: You can also register yourself online thru Web Advisor.

NOTICE: The Federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and various state consumer protection laws require the borrower to acknowledge, in writing or by electronic signature, that they are liable for collection costs in the event the student becomes delinquent or defaults in repaying charges due to the college. Further, they must also agree to pay any such costs associated with the collection of their debts.

Therefore, before students register for classes they must acknowledge in WebAdvisor the “Student Financial Obligation Agreement.” Their e-signature is date and time stamped, providing proof of acknowledgement. The agreement re-sets and must be signed again each semester – in accordance with the governing laws. Until this agreement is acknowledged, students will be on hold and prevented from registering.

New Students
Apply online now! View the New Student Checklist to complete requirements for admission.

Paying for Classes
Make payment arrangements before May 7 to avoid being de-registered or incurring any additional registration fees. Review your schedule and make necessary changes prior to first class day of the semester. Refunds will be calculated for schedule changes made on or after the first day of the semester. The student is responsible for making schedule changes, dropping classes or withdrawing at the Admission and Records Office.
