Distinction Pathways


A Distinction Pathway is a series of courses that leads up to a note of completion on your transcript and, at the same time, helps you choose and complete the requirements for your chosen degree. The Distinction Pathways at TCC, such as Honors, Sustainability, or American Ethnic and Gender Studies, provide you with a focused concentration of courses that can help you in future applications and course work.
