Student Services


Student advising is a continuing service Tidewater Tech offers at no additional charge, providing academic, vocational and personal guidance to all students. This process begins with the Admissions Representative advising a new student about the programs of study available and continues through graduation with your Student Services Advisor and Career Services Advisor.

Academic Resources

Tidewater Tech offers free personal tutoring to all students who need additional academic assistance. The school maintains a wide selection of books, periodicals, and reference material to support the courses.

Career Services

Career Services are available to assist students and graduates as they explore their career paths. While we do not guarantee job placement, essential career support services are provided: Resume Writing, Interview Attire, Interview Coaching and Mock Interviews, and Job Search Strategies. Career Services also arranges for employers to visit the campus occasionally to meet students nearing graduation and may be able to help arrange interviews for students and graduates.
